Anthurium Polyschistum


This delicate Anthurium is found in shady areas of the rain forest in Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, and Colombia.

He actually appears to be more like a palm than an Anthurium due to what is known botanically as "palmatisect" leaves, not every leaf of every specimen will always appear the same. 
Anthurium polyschistum grows as a terrestrial, and appressed epiphytic climber growing close to the host as well as a hemiepiphytic aroid. It's unusual in collections and grows from the ground up the sides of trees or its seeds may be deposited by a bird on the tree and grow down toward the ground where it then deposits roots.

Give him a tall climbing totem, in filtered light and soil that is very fast draining mix with orchid potting media, perlite, and peat moss.

The plant will be shipped in a 12 cm pot.
