These tropical houseplants have leaves called spathes at the base of a spike where the flowers grow. Some plants flower and some plants produce insignificant blooms but show off flashy foliage. Anthuriums have varying leaf characteristics from elongated and narrow to wide, round, heart-shaped, and velvety. The leaves of anthuriums are dark green to deep red-purple with subtle or more pronounced veins in white to pale green that make them really stand out.
Light and Temperature: Because of their native habitat in shady, tropical forests, anthuriums enjoy bright indirect light between 65° – 85°. The humidity preference for these plants is between 50% – 80%. A spot in a well-lit bathroom or kitchen would make them happiest.
Soil: A loose and well-draining potting mix with added bark is best. They do not like to sit in wet soil.
Water: In the wild, many anthuriums cling to trees where they receive moisture that drains away quickly. They do not like to sit in wet soil.
Anthuriums are toxic so keep them out of reach of pets and children.
