lol matt i've been growing them for some time liao.

Tim,
i have the same one from wf and i didnt bother repotting.
but from what i know, most anthuriums are epiphytic so u can grow them in fern bark chip or any other well draining media.

sandy tks for the tip

matt - u know gardeners who like foliage plants,in particular the huge ones, will naturally gravitate to ferns esply platys, gingers (bonus - weird flowers), yams, aroids....ah..tillandsias too..and grasses...

This looks more like Anthurium clarinervium or its hybrid.

I'd rather you have 60% IBE and 40% compost. better drainage.

hi calvin,
i've been fooling around with different planting medias for anthuriums.
some i've left in the original soil media, others i've used fern bark chips and also coconut husk chips.
whats your take on those?

well, for those epiphytic anthuriums (eg: warocqueanum and veitchii), then use an open medium like big cocohusk chips, leca pellets, pumice stones...etc.

below see my Anthurium kunthii attaching well to a cocofibre pole.

for those terrestrial anthuriums (eg: andreanum, crystallinum and clarinervium), can use a well draining soil mix with lots of compost.


there are also some anthuriums that are lithophytic (ie grow on rocks).. the choice of medium should be obvious.

elwingos plant is clarinervium .. just getting lots of ripe berries now . They take forever to mature and are very erect and stand high above the foliage . Leaves are smaller than crystallinum as well . Some limestone chips are great addition to media for this plant as it grows on limestone ridges in Mexico and Guatemala .

thank you isla and michael for the id and suggestions for the growing medium. pardon my ignorance, but in the classification of v similar (and hence easily mistaken) anthuriums, does the gap on the top of the leaves play a part? talos' crystallinum hybrid has a much wider gap than my clarinervium although both plants have v similar leaf shape and striations.

elwingo.. don't know what gap you are referring to.. are you saying your clarinervium has a rounder fatter butt? LOL

LOL... not hardcore yet lah...haha

i think some people call the gap between the 2 posterior leaf lobes of anthuriums sinus..not butts..

ok for BE, the best quality is indonesian BE, followed by malaysian BE, then Singapore BE.. this is my experience although sometimes u can get v good MBE like the last batch of MBE from katong florist. IBE is usually super dry and NOT crumbly which is what u want cos u dont want your BE to breakdown just after a few months. the current batch at katong florist is SBE and really 'no eye see'..but i was desperate so i got the best looking pack but it still had too much fine sand.

u can get v good IBE from WF but i think they have ran out of it...for quite some time somemore..so guanstar..if u are reading this... u know what to do hor...
