Anthurium plowmanii is a variable species and may produce leaf blades with widely varying forms. Named in honor of botanist Timothy Plowman (1944-1989). Anthurium plowmanii ranges from western and northern Brazil into Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay. Unlike most rainforest plants, Anthurium plowmanii can grow in extremely dry conditions and is often the only evergreen plant in some jungle areas during the dry season. This makes it a great indoor plant where air humidity is low.
