Anthurium

Anthurium sp.

A very popular flowering tropical plant, Anthuriums are also well suited as indoor plants or as feature plants in pots.  They come in many different sizes and colours.

They thrive in bright humid conditions and given a rich well-draining soil, they will excel as an understory planting in the garden.

Anthuriums are intolerant of frost, however, they can handle cool conditions in a protected spot.  Humidity and an extended period of warmth are required for flowering.

When kept indoors, place in indirect light and ensure to let the soil almost dry out before giving the plant a thorough watering.

Fertilise with a slow-release organic fertiliser.
