The anthuriums are collector's plants, and many of the most magnificent varieties are rare outside of greenhouses and botanical gardens. This particular Anthurium has been engineered to display beautiful blue hues instead of the traditional red color spectrum.
Light: Bright, indirect light. Do not expose to direct sunlight, except in the winter or plants that have been carefully acclimated. Water: Keep compost moist at all times, but not drenched. Foliage anthurium throw off aerial roots that appreciate misting and can be pushed into the soil. Temperature: They suffer below 60ºF. Best to keep the temperature 75ºF or higher. Soil: Rich, loose potting media. Push exposed roots into the soil. Fertilizer: Use liquid fertilizer throughout the growing period or pellets in the spring.
All anthuriums prefer plenty of warmth, regular moisture and ample fertilizer. This Anthurium is one of the easiest to grow. These plants have been extensively hybridized. To grow them best, approximate conditions found in tropical zones, and if necessary, provide a climbing support for foliage varieties.
NOTE: The leaves on this plant contain insoluble calcium oxalate crystals, which can be very irritating to the mouth, throat, and GI tract. Do not allow pets to eat the leaves.
