Did you know the colorful “flowers” of the Anthurium are actually modified leaves? The true flowers of the plant grow from the center structure called an inflorescence.
Originally found in areas of the Andes Mountains range in Columbia and Equador, this beauty enjoys a warm spot in your home with a bit of extra humidity.
Care: Simply repot with a peat moss or a coco coir-based soil mixture, provide bright, indirect sunlight, and allow the soil to partially dry out between waterings. For more robust, repeated “flowering,” allow the Anthurium to rest for six weeks with little water during the winter at approximately 60°F.
