Anthurium Plant Introduction
The Anthurium is a genus of flowering plants containing about 1000 species categorized under family . It is known by several common names are anthurium, lace-leaf, flamingo flower, and tail flower etc. The Anthurium originates from the America, distributed from northern Argentina to Northern Mexico, also found in some parts of the Caribbean. Anthurium has brightly colored flower spathes and ornamental leaves, which come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Its shiny heart-shaped “flower” is really a spathe or waxy modified leaf that flares out from the base of the fleshy spike or spadix where the tiny real flowers grow with shiny dark green foliage. For its resemblance to flame, the plant is also called the flamingo flower.
The Anthurium can reach up to a height of 1.5 feet. When caring for an Anthurium plant, moisture control must be given great emphasis. They do well in partial sun exposure or shade, if kept indoors it needs bright indirect light and it will not do well under low light conditions. A moderate temperature range between 25 to 30 degree celsius is required to have it flowering year along. A well-draining soil must be used for the plants, with young plants being planted in a mix that is not too coarse. Successive watering of the plant must have some drying out period in between, as the Anthurium prefers to dry out a bit. Pellets or liquid fertilizers can be used throughout the growing period. Long temperature fluctuations or drought must be avoided.
The anthurium makes for excellent decorative plants. If proper maintenance is given, the spikes can last a month or two, meaning your garden is always adorned with some blooms. Small flowers bearing inflorescence makes them ideal, having the female as well as the male structures. The ornamental leaves and bright color flowers of the Anthurium makes them every gardener’s delight.
