Seed parent: dark magnificum, which, unlike many we see in cultivation today, sports gorgeous, dark leaves with minimal but prominent venation. This specimen was acquired from a private collector, who had this magnificum in their collection since the 80's.

Pollen parent: dark forgetii, which sports large, round, dark veins.

We are thrilled to share these dark hybrids with you. As they are hybrids, each plant will show slightly different traits. 

Each seedling will have 2-5 leaves. This listing is for two seedlings!

 

SOIL:

Anthuriums are typically epiphytic and do well in a substrate with ample aeration- orchid bark, charcoal, coco coir, perlite, and things of that nature assist with aerating your substrate so it is not too dense and holding too much moisture. It is always best to play around with what substrate mixture works best for your environment.

LIGHT:

Anthuriums can survive in lower light conditions, but prefer at least 6 hours of bright, indirect sunlight each day. We grow our seedling under shade cloth, outdoors, for reference. Harsh, direct light may burn the leaves, and very low light could stunt growth and prevent flowering.

WATER:
Anthuriums do well to always have a slight level of dampness, but not constantly soggy.

CONDITIONS:

Anthuriums thrive in a humid environment. If you live in a more naturally humid area like we do, here in Central Florida, outside may be a good spot to keep them. Airflow is essential to prevent water build-up on the leaves, which can lead to fungus.

HISTORY:
Anthuriums are found throughout Central and South America. As of today there are 18 sectional groupings of anthuriums, with each section presenting similar defining traits. We most often offer anthuriums from the cardiolonchium and branchiolonchium sections. Interestingly- these two groups have been successful in crossing and we have two sectional crosses we are eager to grow out.
