Anthurium andreanum - Flamingo Flower
Named for its bright waxy blooms, the Flamingo Flower is a gorgeous ornamental Anthurium, boasting glossy heart-shaped leaves and long-lasting flowers. Most of these flowering Anthuriums are cultivars of Anthurium andreanum, but to make new varieties with unique inflorescences and leaves, the plants are often crossed with other species, creating a whole rainbow of different blooms colors and leaf shapes. The flowers on our Anthurium andreanum range from white to red, orange, purple, pink, green, or even a combination of colors, making beautiful cut flowers for arrangements. But with blooms often lasting on the plant for four to six weeks, a Flamingo Flower is like a living bouquet!
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water thoroughly when the top 1-2" of soil dries out
• Considerations: To encourage more blooms, use a low-strength fertilizer monthly during spring and summer

It has always been a healthy plant. Purchased it over a year ago
This is a difficult plant to find so I was quick to get it when it was offered! It arrived in excellent condition and the plant looked precisely as in the photos. I have had no issues with it whatsoever. For anyone interested in getting anthuriums for both their flowers/spathes as well as the foliage, then this is an excellent choice!
What a great source for hard to find specimens. My plant arrived beautifully packed and in excellent conditions.
