Plant Description:

Anthurium, also known as the tailflower, flamingo flower, or laceleaf, is a captivating genus of around 1,000 perennial plants native to Central America, northern South America, and the Caribbean. Revered for their tropical elegance, these plants are characterized by heart-shaped waxy spathes in vibrant red, green, and white hues. The unique bloom and large-leaved foliage make Anthurium a stunning addition to indoor spaces. The plant typically grows at a slow to moderate rate, favoring bright, indirect light.

NASA Approved Air Purifier:

Anthuruim not only enchants with its ornate appearance but also contributes to cleaner indoor air. Recognized by NASA for its air-purifying qualities, Anthurium helps improve air quality by filtering out common pollutants.

Care Tips for a Happy Anthurium:

  • Thrives in bright, indirect light; avoid direct sunlight.
  • Prefers a well-draining mix with added sand and peat moss for optimal growth.
  • Keep soil slightly moist; allow the top inch to dry before watering.
  • Enjoys high humidity and temperatures between 65 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit; mist the plant in dry conditions.

Anthurium Well-Being Signals:

  • Yellow Leaves: Adjust the plant's location if leaves are yellowing; too much direct sunlight may be the cause.
  • Floppy Leaves:
  • Watch for signs of rhizoctonia fungus, which can make stems weak and floppy.

Pet Friendliness:

Caution: Anthurium is toxic to humans and pets.

Common Pests and Problems:

  • Watch for mealybugs, spider mites, whiteflies, and scale; control naturally with water blasts or use horticultural soap or oil sprays.
