Also called the Flaming Flower, the Anthurium is a popular indoor plant due to its ease of care. These houseplants produce beautiful, long-lasting flowers throughout the year. The waxy heart-shaped ‘flowers’ are actually modified leaves. Anthurium ‘flowers’ come in red, pink, pale yellow, white and salmon. As the flowers die or fade, remove them from the plant immediately.
Native to tropical rainforests throughout central and South America, many Anthuriums are climbers in their natural settings. They love warmth and humidity. Keep the leaves clean and glossy by wiping them with a damp cloth to keep them dust free.
