Anthuriums are striking indoor plants that will brighten up your work-desk very well. The flowers are lvery similar to a Peace Lily's and are long lasting. It's not unusual for an Anthurium to be in almost continuous bloom. With the bright waxy tough flowers hovering above the contrasting dark green leaves for months on end they're good value and certainly have many fans.

Good light is needed for all Anthurium's, but you should avoid direct sunlight otherwise the leaves will go brown and crispy.
Anthuriums don't like dryness at the roots, but occasional experiences of this won't be a deal breaker. For best results use tepid soft water and try to keep the soil at least slightly moist at all times.
