Product description

This rare species of Anthurium comes from the lowland rainforest of the Amazon. There, the species grows as an epiphyte in trees and on rocks, with the striking long, narrow leaves hanging down. These leaves can grow up to 2 metres long and only 6 cm wide, so the species does well as a hanging plant, for example. The inflorescence consists of a spotted spathe and a yellow spadix, with the flowers being followed after pollination by orange to pink fruits usually containing 2 seeds. 

Growing as an epiphyte, it is important to provide a very drained soil with e.g. Sphagnum moss, perlite and orchid soil. The soil should be constantly slightly moist and further ensure a light location without direct sunlight. It is best to keep the humidity above 70 per cent, if necessary by regularly spraying the leaves with water. The ideal temperature for this plant is between 20 and 30grC.

Sowing description: The already germinated seed can further develop in a light place (without direct sunlight) in a translucent bag/tray with Spaghnum moss at a temperature of 20 to 26 grC. Let the young plant gradually get used to a lower humidity of the living room and keep the pot/tray closed with foil or glass at first.
