wow, well-grown, Richmond! :notworthy:/>

i always thought that anthuriums don't bloom easily in our climate & was always hesistant to get one as i'm afriad i'd reduce it to a pot of green leaves, but u certainly proved my theory wrong! gorgeous! :)/>

Yeah Thanks!

Well this particular cultivar is not seen in many nurseries...Those in nurseries have pink and red including the middle spike or spadix... The petal is also not "crumpled" like those in the nurseries...

I have yet to see this red and white spadix cultivar anywhere.. I got this from a fellow gardener a few years ago...
Easy to grow in my opinion... Just partial sunlight and daily watering.. and it blooms !

The entire flower can cover half of your palm...

No need to wait for Xmas or CNY, because it is always blooming... 1 flower dried up another one is already starting to open!

hi KD

wat kind of fert do you give it? and when you see roots creeping out of soil at the top, is it time to move to bigger pot? mine has plantlets growing from the base of mother plants - is it easy to tear out and repot too? sorry so many questions...hard to find ppl who are expert in "common" anthrium houseplant...

btw....love the brilliant red of the anthus....
