Description for Anthurium (White)

The anthurium plant has a bright pink, the tube-shaped flower that sits on the end of a long stalk. For this reason, the plant is often called the flamingo flower for its resemblance to the bird. With proper care, each flower spike can last four to six weeks, and you almost always have blooms to display.

The leaves are often clustered and are variable in shape. The inflorescence bears small flowers which are perfect, containing male and female structures. The flowers are contained in dense spirals on the spadix. The spadix is often elongated into a spike shape, but it can be globe-shaped or club-shaped. Beneath the spadix is the spathe, a type of bract.
Its leaves are usually simple, large, attractively coloured and borne on long stalks. The flowering stalk is slender, ending in a fleshy column crowded with many uni-sexual flowers. They have leafy bracts which may be white, yellow, red, pink, orange or green.

Caring for Anthurium

  • Anthuriums need a high light but not direct sunlight.Remove dead and unsightly foliage and faded or brown flowers.
  • Use a peat moss base.
  • Do not over-water the anthuriums as it may cause root damage and yellowing of the leaves.
  • Avoid droughts and strong temperature fluctuations.

  • Pinch off the dead flower, leaving the stem and any remaining flower buds intact.
