Anthurium plants are called “Laceleaf” or “Flamingo Flower” because of the structure of the flower. They produce heart-shaped “flowers” in red, pink, white, and salmon. Proper care for anthurium is easy to do. These plants are considered poisonous.
The anthurium is a plant genus of around 1,000 species of plants. These plants develop in bright colors and a wide variety of shapes; some are flowering varieties and some have magnificent foliage. The flowering varieties of these plants are distinctive for their multicolored spathes and red or yellow tail-like flower spikes. Other varieties feature large-leaved, deeply veined foliage. These plants tend to thrive in greenhouses and no type of anthurium is particularly well-suited for most indoor, domestic living without a lot of attention and care. Native to tropical rainforests throughout Central and South America, many anthuriums are climbers and all need high humidity and warmth to thrive.
