Anthurium metallicum is our darkest velvet aroid yet. The long heart-shaped leaves of this plant can grow over 4 feet long under the right conditions! Native to Colombia, this plant grows along slopes and ravines as a lithophyte, epiphyte, or among debris along the forest floor. This is one of the most prized aroids for collectors of velvet plants.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water thoroughly when the top 1" or so of soil dries out. Avoid letting the plant dry out completely.
• Considerations: A boost in humidity will help the leaves grow big and healthy, especially as new leaves are emerging and hardening off. Keep away from heating/AC vents.
