Also known as Laceleaf, this rare and unusual plant has stunning dark green velvety leaves with a strong pale vein. We are delighted to be able to stock these beauties from time to time. They usually don't stay with us for long, so act fast! Our current stock have between 3-6 leaves, and fit great in our Frank, Jennie, Kevin, Sienna and Ashley pots.
Light: Show this stunner off in a room with lots of light. It’s not a good idea to put it in direct sun (in summer anyway) as it's is a bit too strong.
Water: Let it dry out a small bit between waterings. This helps to ensure you're not overwatering it. When the top two inches feel dry, time to water.
Humidity: As with most indoor plants, the anthurium clarinervium loves humidity. Placing it in a room with moist air (like a bathroom) for a few days will help it thrive.
Height and growth rate: If thriving, they have a good growth rate and would need to be repotted every two years or so.
Temperature: An optimal temperature is 18 to 23°C, and during the dormancy period (autumn and winter) around 12 to 15°C.
Feed: Feed with a diluted liquid fertiliser (on the weaker side) every month or two.
Toxicity: Toxic if ingested.
Care tips: If you're ever repotting an Anthurium, it will be happiest in an orchid mix soil. The flowers are a bit unusual, and can take a lot of energy from the plant. If the flower isn't for you, just go ahead and snip it off so all the energy is focused back into the foliage.
