I bought this anthurium crystalinum from WF on monday. This is a hard to find anthurium plant with enormous heart-shaped velvety green leaf and white veins, with insignificant green flower. The media that was used is something like grainhusk - can someone who have planted this plant before help to adv what media should I used to repot this plant and also the plant growing conditions.

I bought this plant on August 12 and after 15 days this plant has grown with bigger new leaves. I measured the old leaf - about 9+ inches - now the new leaf is about 11 inches and is still growing. I still have not repotted it - need to know what type of soil mix is ideal for such a plant.
NEED SOMEONE TO ENLIGHTEN ME ON THESE please adv.

Soil Type: An ideal mix would be 3 parts peat, 1 part chopped sphagnum moss, 1 part gravel and a little organic soil. Always use a pot with a hole.
Watering: Drench the soil and let it become moderately dry between waterings. Use warm water.

I bought this plant from WF on last Wed on the recommendation of Maggie and Moods.
I transplanted mine by transferring the whole plant with the original soil into a bigger pot and filled the surrounding edge with SM. So far so good.

Hello Fierydragon,

Many thanks for your imput of the above regarding soil mix for the crystal anthurium. I have since worked on try and error repotting my crystal anthurium and is doing fine so far. I will do the correct way on my next repot on this plant.

Glad that you also bought this plant. Are the leaves BIG and in good condition? Why not post photos of your buy?

I also bought this plant from WF in August 12 2008 and it has been growing BIG leaf now. This plant was a hard to get type of plant and most anthurium lovers looked high and low for it, fortunately and only recently WF brought in this lot and understand from Mr.Lee of WF that it came from the Indonesian jungle - wild plants.

Yes, both Maggie and Moods has saw my plant during their visit to my garden. It is one of the attractions in my high humidity , bright shaded corners.

Cheers,
BMB Albert

Anthurium crystallinum may be hard to get in singapore until the WF import; but it is quite a commonly available tissue cultured plant elsewhere.

It does not get that big. If you want BIG leaves, you should check out Anthurium regale or Anthurium angamarcanum marmoratum. Go google for pics. These are considered very very rare plants and may not even be available in Singapore except in some private collections. They would need intermediate temp to grow well.

A bit shy to post pics as I have just re-potted my plant and it is now recovering in a completely shady environment.
The plant has suffered some shock due to transportation and re-potting.
The leaves are of average size now, but I believe with TLC it will grow bigger.
Definitely will take pics in a few day's time when they become presentable.

WOW!! My anthurium crystalinum has been re potted at the time of purchase from WF and now it has outgrown its pot again. The leaves have grown bigger than before and the colour seems more pronounced.
Will definately take pic to post when free.

I normally like to cut off the older smaller leaves. don't want to maintain too many leaves on a plant. Older leaves tend to attract critters like spider mites.

Hi Gramm,
Thanks for your compliment. After growing this plant for more than 2 years and also reading and understanding their growing conditions from the net. I understand that Anthurium Crystalinum like to be in bright shades, its media must have very good drainage BUT they also want to have moist media and high humidity surroundings.
Why not show us photos of your plant including its position - maybe could help you after viewing your photos.

Cheers,
BMB Albert
