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. Each plant has a minimum of 3 leaves.
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 the soil dry out 2cm or so on top, in between waterings. This helps to ensure you're not overwatering it.
Humidity: As with many indoor plants, it 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 house plant feed (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.
