This reptilian Anthurium hybrid may look prehistoric, but this and similar Radicans hybrids were discovered around the 1970s. An herbaceous evergreen, this tropical perennial originates from tropical regions of Southeastern Brazil and Ecuador. Their ripply, bullate leaves, which have earned this variety the nickname of “Quilted Hearts”, emerge a deep bronzy red, but slowly fade to deep green. A rapid grower, the radicans x luxurians can grow to around 20 inches tall!
We love these rare beauties for their deep purple inflorescences that unfurl from the base of the plant, as well as their relatively easy care!
Light: Anthurium thrive in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as the intense rays can burn their tender leaves. Crisping and discoloration of the leaves is a possible sign that your plant is getting too much direct sun.
Water: Keep soil moist, but never soggy. Water once the soil dries about two inches down in the pot. A chunky soil mixture with good aeration is key for a happy plant.
Humidity: Moderate humidity is best for this variety. We recommend adding a humidifier to your plant care routine or placing it on a pebble tray to help provide humidity if your space is dry.
This plant is poisonous to pets if ingested.
