The Anthurium or Flamingo plant is known for its beautiful flowers. These evergreen flowering houseplants are native to the tropical rainforests of South America. The Anthurium is not only beautiful, but also easy to maintain. They grow best in bright, indirect light. Water your anthurium plant regularly, but do not overwater it. Only water when the soil feels dry. The Anthurium produces continuous heart-shaped flowers and is available in different colors such as red, white and pink.
Anthuriums are also known as Flamingo flower or boy flower
These popular exotic houseplants have eye-catching, waxy heart shaped spathes (often referred to as flowers) with yellow spikes (spadix) sticking out from the centre of each spathe on dark green foliage
Anthuriums as we know them today have their history going back to 1876 when the first hybrids were developed from plants from the rain forests of Columbia.
The name Anthurium is derived from the Greek words 'Anthos' meaning Flower and 'oura', which means tail (Tail Flower).
