Seed parent: voodoo child
Pollen parent: voodoo child
The voodoo child is a cross between regale and dressleri, created by Jay Vanini. These seedlings are voodoo child crossed self, making them F2.
We've had this plant in our collection since 2019. These berries take about 8-9 months to ripen and they yield a small batch every time, and therefore are released in very limited numbers. These are still growing in sphagnum moss and will ship in a small container of sphagnum. If you transition them to a new medium don’t be alarmed if a leaf drops.
Each seedling will have 2-3 leaves.
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.
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.
Anthuriums do well to always have a slight level of dampness, but not constantly soggy.
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.
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.
