About the plant : The Clarinervium is one of the most sought after plants at the moment and its easy to see why! This non-flowering Anthurium has large, deeply lobed, heart shaped leaves that have strong white veining and a velvety feel.
Care: A well drained soil with a loose structure is best for Anthurium. We find a peat based compost provides good results. Rain water is ideal, however tap water that has had time for chemicals to evaporate will do just fine. Its best to water only when dry from the last time, and tip any excess water away afterwards. A bright room with indirect sunlight will provide the best growing conditions.
In addition to the above, Anthurium do best when the humidity is above average for a UK home. In a bathroom or kitchen is the perfect environment, however it is easily possible to have one in any room provided its either misted regularly or sat on a tray with pebbles and water to provide a extra humidity.
Toxicity: As with most house plants, anthurium should not be eaten by humans or animals and are toxic to cats and dogs.
Native Locations: Mexico
