This Anthurium crystallinum is a thriving pup in an 8cm pot with fern fiber. One of the perfect first "advanced plants" for those who have a booming houseplant collection, the crystallinum, it's a great introduction to rare exotic plants in New Zealand.
Anthuriums are aroid plants originating in the neotropics (South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean), where most species grow epiphytically on the branches of trees in lush, tropical forests.
To thrive in our homes, anthuriums need medium to bright indirect light, although they’ll accept less during their dormant period in winter. They are sensitive to direct light and burn easily, so take care to protect from hot afternoon sunbeams. Proper watering is key to Anthurium care (and to the care of all your houseplants!). Keep the soil lightly moist during the growing season, letting the top layer just approach dryness between waterings.
