Anthurium Plants


Foliage Anthuriums are mostly found at specialty greenhouses or through online nurseries. To grow them, it's best to replicate conditions found in tropical zones. Keep them in very high humidity and warmth, and provide a climbing support if necessary.
Anthurium plants require bright, indirect light. Do not expose to direct sunlight, except in the winter. Keep compost moist at all times, but not drenched. The flowering varieties suffer if the temperatures drop below 60ยบ Fahrenheit. The foliage types prefer it even warmer.
The are two groups of anthurium grown in greenhouses: flowering varieties and those with magnificent foliage. The only ones you're likely to see in the garden center are the flowering varieties with their multicolored spathes and red or yellow tail-like flower spikes. But if you are intrepid, you might come across a few of the large-leaved, deeply veined foliage types.
Be warned: neither type of anthurium is particularly well-suited for most houses. Native to tropical rainforests throughout Central and South America, many anthuriums are climbers and all need very high humidity and warmth to thrive.

More leaves in this post :). And actually, in spite of our cool and wet climate, this plant has been in our living room and probably still is one of my wife's favourites.

@colson : If your wife wants more such plants, your son can take it free of charge at my home in Jakarta. Thanks for comments, Jerry.
