Care Information

  • Site

    A spot with medium light being careful to avoid extreme light or extreme dark. It can get burnt in sunlight but also droop if deprived.

  • Temperature

    Similar to light conditions, it thrives on a happy medium. Do not let it drop below 13°C or go above 28°C for sustained periods. 

  • Water

    Despite needing almost excessive moisture in the air to reach its full potential, it really is not a particularly thirsty plant. Ensure the pot has drainage and that it does not dry out completely, but there is no need to keep it damp all the time. It can be prone to root rot during winter so water extra sparingly during the coldest months.

  • Feeding

    During winter it will not grow unless under artificial grow lights in a well heated room with a humidifier, so unless you're providing these conditions it will only need feeding during the summer months.

  • Tip

    The perfect condition for this plant is a normally lit room with plenty of humidity and ventilation. A bathroom where it can have regular sustained periods of all three is absolutely ideal. 

Anthurium Clarinervium

Velvet Heart Anthurium

A striking epiphyte originating in Mexico and found across the rainforests of South America, this bold and beautiful member of the Araceae family is coveted for its velvety leaves and vivacious colours. 

A great addition to any steamy bathroom or busy kitchen in need of that punchy colour, or as part of a terrarium that creates its own humidity. You can also use a humidifier to emulate its natural environment which is ideally 80% humidity for maximum growth.

This plant absolutely loves being misted and dislikes being cold. Be sure not to over-water during winter and if you're looking to prune back make sure it's done in spring. It can also get burnt and dry out, so avoid extremes. 

We love this house plant for its quality to grow compact bushiness without spreading its heart shaped leaves upwards or outwards too much. This gives each plant a unique identity and complexity that can really stand out in a crowded spot. Don't expect them to grow out above 1.5m, which makes them great for a tight spot.

Not to be confused with Alocasia, which looks similar but behaves very differently. Anthuriums are one of the largest and most varied families of houseplant, and they can be found in wild rainforests all over the globe. Like most anthuriums, this splendid variety gives a lot of beauty and growth for not a lot of maintenence. It will flower in time, but the flowers lack petals and are not as visually memorable as the leaves themselves.
