  • Care
  • During the summer Anthurium requires plenty of water, keep the compost from drying out. The plants in special AquaForWeeks pots do not need watering as often, once every 3, 4 or even 5 weeks is suffice, this depends on the conditions of your living room.
    The flamingo plant loves a high humidity level so place preferably in a warm place but not above radiators. They enjoy a daily spray using either rainwater or tepid water.

    During the growing period add plant food for flowering plants regularly when watering, but do not feed in the winter. In the winter keep the Anthurium in a cool and dry place for about six weeks. During this time new flower buds will form.

    Pot up your Anthurium (Flamingo Flower plant) every 2 or 3 years in special Anthurium potting compost (this is airier than ‘normal’ potting compost).

  • Specifics
  • Anthurium is native to the tropical rainforests of South and Central America.
    Anthurium is classified under Araceae. The name is from the Greek anthos (flower) and oura (tail). Its common name is Flamingo Flower plant.

    The flower is actually a spathe which surrounds the small inconspicuous flowers that develop along the centre spadix! They last a long time because of the ripening process of the berries on the spike which takes about 6 months.
    These plants were first grown commercially in France and Belgium. The first (Anthurium) andreanum hybrid was developed in 1876 and named after the French garden designer E. Fr. Andre who also edited the French magazine ‘Revue Horticulture’. 

    The most well known flamingo plants (Anthurium andreanum) are in a beautiful red or white. In recent years the colour diversity has increased through hybridisation.

    Trendy Anthurium in all its many shades, looks great in various interiors, classic or modern.
