We are pleased to offer this rare Anthurium from our collection for the first time. This is a palmate-leaved aroid, normally with 5 (sometimes 7 to 9) leaflets. The span of the leaves can grow up to 18 inches wide. When blooming, the upright spadix is purplish in color. Easy to grow in warm tropical conditions, it quickly scrambles up trees with its many aerial roots. Also, it can grow upon itself forming an upright clump to 4 feet. Try potted as an indoor house plant with well draining epiphytic type soil on a moss pole. Grow in part to full shade with a minimum temperature of 50F. It's a variable species, ranging from Mexico, Central America, Columbia and Ecuador to the Amazonian region of Brazil. It is usually found in moist to wet mountain or lowland zones from sea level to 2,500 feet. USDA zones 10 - 11.
