It is estimated there are over 500 species of anthurium which originate from the American tropics. Many are also air plants

The foliage is extremely variable and almost all species demand low to bright light (but never any strong direct sun) in shaded conditions. The soil, should be loose, very well drained and extremely rich in organic content. Protection from wind is desired to not harm the attractive leaves

Most folks think of this variety as Anthurium

As houseplants, regular human indoor light conditions can be OK with enough bright light hours, but warmth is essential. Water faithfully even in cool and cold months but insure excellent drainage. Food is required
