Description: Originating in the rainforests of Colombia, South America. Anthurium andreanum is an important floricultural crop grown in many parts of the world in warmer climates for cut flower production and plant sales. The current varieties available are far removed from the original species having undergone many years of breeding and selection. Varieties are available in shades of red and pink and white and with large flowers. Plants raised from seed exhibit variations in colour shape and size of the flower. The most colourful part of the flower is the spathe.
Anthurium andreanum makes an excellent pot plant with glossy green leaves and flowers held on tall petioles. Requires warm growing conditions. Excellent for cut flower use with a long vase life.
