Anthurium Angamarcanum has unique dark velvety leaves with light veins. He's endemic to Columbia.
Collectors grow Anthurium angamarcanum for the velvety sheen and exaggerated length of the leaf blades. The veins are silvery and prominent. This foliage wonder can grow leaves up to 60 cm in length under the right care conditions.
The leaf's surface is covered with fine, dense silky pubescence (hair), pendent or elongated in shape, sometimes even heart-shaped.
These plants grow in the cracks in big trees, drawing nutrients from the air, rainwater and dead leaves, and animal droppings that collect around their roots.
They need warm temperatures - at least 15 degrees, humid air, lots of filtered light, and rich organic aerated soil. They are root-bound and don’t need a lot of soil substrate.
One great care hack for this rare velvety leaf anthurium uses rainwater or water from your fish tank. There are trace minerals in rainwater that are great for the plant. Fish droppings are a nutrient feast for Anthuriums.
In the forests, they grow under the shades of trees. They are sensitive to direct sun and easily burn but require constant bright indirect light to thrive indoors.
The plant will be shipped in a 12 cm pot.
