When no one’s watching, we’re all kings and queens, and our home is a castle. Why not honor it with something truly royal?
Anthurium Regale, an exquisite aroid, identified in 1888, with its coriaceous (leathery) leaves, is a rarity and one of nature’s most exquisite wonders.
This aroid is a member of section Cardiolonchium, a section characterized by plants with velvety leaves on the upper surface. Other well-known members of this Anthurium section include Anthurium Crystallinum, Anthurium Magnificum, and Anthurium Warocqueanum.
This amazing, noble specimen can grow stunningly large, provided you offer it the conditions it prefers- that is, indirect exposure to sunlight, moderate temperature, high humidity, and damp, well-drained potting media.
Spoil it the way it deserves, and it will repay you accordingly: with incredible growth and leaves that may eventually exceed 1m, sometimes growing even larger! Collectors who have observed the plant in Peru report specimens with leaves approaching 2 meters.
A truly rare aroid, Anthurium Regale is one almost any collector would love to add to their collection! Are you among them?
The plant is 85 - 90 cm tall, and the leaf is almost 40 cm long, as a reference - the pot he's shipped in has 15 cm in diameter.
