Product Details

Anthurium is derived from Greek; anthos (flower) and aura (tail) – a literal translation would be ‘flowering tail’.

Originally, the species grow in various terrain of the rainforest, either as an epiphyte where they cling onto a tree or as a lithophyte where they can be found on stone. With their easily adaptable characters, the plants are forgiving for forgetful plant owners.

Fun Fact!

In the 2000s, there were three Anthurium species that gained massive popularity in Indonesia; Anthurium plowmanii, Anthurium hookeri and Anthurium jenmanii. They were so popular, that many were able to pay extremely handsome prices.

However, it has been a common mistake to identify authentic types of Anthurium species with an unknown hybrid.  Steve Lucas, a horticultural enthusiast with a vast network of botanists, dedicated a website for readers to easily understand botanical articles. He mentioned that the majority of the photos labelled and sold as Anthurium jenmanii on Google are actually not the real form of Anthurium jenmanii but instead they are hybrids of Anthurium bonplandii subspecies guayanum.
