Anthurium magnificum (Anthurium magnificum)
Anthurium magnificum is an incredible aroid whose leaves can become quite massive, up to 18-24” long by 20” wide, when fully mature. The leaves look leathery with age and exude a lush dark green color with contrasting bright white veining. This tropical plant is native to the rainforests of Columbia, so it grows best in warm 65-85°F temperatures with high humidity levels. Plant in a well-drained potting mix and give bright indirect light from morning sunlight. An east or north window is best. Water when the top 1-2” of soil are dry and fertilize in summer when the plant is actively growing. Anthurium magnificum acts as an air purifier to clean toxins from the indoor air, and it’s an impressive plant that creates a showpiece for the home or garden.
