Product Details

Welcome to Plant&Leaf and our range of family grown plants. The first photo serves as a representative display, showcasing the beauty of a mature plant. The second photo provides a sample of a single plant from the current batch available. The new leaves will often come out a lovely light colour like in the photo and harden off to a darker green. Please note the Pot size displayed on the heading of each product.

All of our plants are grown outdoors in nature and are exposed to the natural elements. Sometimes this means a leaf could have been chewed here and there or have a blemish or two – but we do our best to send the best plants we can on every order.

Anthuriums, also known as flamingo flowers (Flowering Types), are stunning tropical plants prized for their colorful, glossy, heart-shaped flowers and attractive foliage or for the interesting leaf shapes and textures in the species grown for their foliage. Here are some tips to help you keep your Anthurium healthy and thriving:

  1. Light: Anthuriums prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves. Place your plant near a window where it can receive bright, filtered light or use sheer curtains to diffuse direct sunlight.

  2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your Anthurium thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure that excess water can drain away freely from the pot to prevent root rot. Avoid letting the plant sit in water for extended periods.

  3. Humidity: Anthuriums thrive in high humidity environments. Mist the leaves regularly with water or place a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot to increase humidity levels around the plant. Alternatively, you can use a room humidifier.

  4. Temperature: Anthuriums prefer warm temperatures between 18°C to 27°C. Protect them from drafts and temperature extremes. Avoid placing them near heating or cooling vents.

  5. Soil: Plant your Anthurium in well-draining, aerated potting mix. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark works well. Repot your Anthurium every 1-2 years or when it outgrows its current pot.

  6. Fertilizing: Feed your Anthurium with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or cease fertilization during the winter months when growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Remove any yellow or dead leaves as they appear. Regularly prune your Anthurium to encourage bushy growth and remove spent flowers. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears.

  8. Pests and Diseases: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as aphids, spider mites, and scale insects. Wipe down the leaves with a damp cloth regularly to remove dust and discourage pests. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

With proper care and attention to its needs, your Anthurium will reward you with beautiful flowers and lush foliage for years to come.
