My Anthurium...what did I do wrong?

I was gifed a beautiful Anthurium. After the leaves and the flower died, I wanted to keep it and bring it back again, so I googled what to do. I read to cut back any dead leaves and flowers which I did.

The picture is what has come back so far.


As you can see, the oldest leaf was burned. I had the plant on a west facing porch, not realizing that corner was getting hit by direct sunlight. Also, the small brown thing that I circled, started out to be the flower, but it died. What am I doing wrong? I've read that when watering this potted plant to put 6 ice cubes on top of the soil. Is this correct? I was misting them as well.

Any advice or suggestions are welcome!

Thank you,
