Anthurium forgetii is one of our favorite velvet aroids we've ever offered. It has dark green velvety leaves with crystalline silver veins. The leaves are also peltate, meaning the petiole connects to the back of the leaf without a sinus. The upside-down teardrop shape makes the plant look almost like a cartoon.

Although highly sought by plant collectors, not much is known about this Anthurium; no one is quite sure where the first specimen was collected, although some say it originates from Colombia. In fact, so little is known about the plant in the wild that botanical institutes don't even list the name species name "forgetii". Although the species might not be recognized by science, we recognize Anthurium forgetii as an important addition to any aroid collection.
