Family: Araceae

An unusual houseplant with dramatic green foliage, large showy red or orange spathe and a unique coiled spadix. Smaller than Anthurium andraeanum, it's easier to grow and tolerates lower temperatures. Can grow to 2 feet tall. Likes a warm and humid atmosphere in light shade. As basically an epiphytic plant, grow it in a porous soil mix and keep it damp but not soaked. Fertilize monthly in the warmer months for good growth. Reduce watering in the winter. Winter temperature should be 60F or higher. Outside in USDA zones 10 to 12. Native to Costa Rica.

Sold in 4 inch pots.
