Painter's-palette (Anthurium andraeanum)

.
Anthurium andraeanum is the botanical name of this species belonging to the family Araceae and is commonly known as: anthurium, anthurium, red anthurium, anthurium heart and love anthurium. Its synonymies are the following: Anthurium andraeanum var. divergens and Anthurium venustum.

This original Perennial from South America can reach fifty centimeters in height and thirty centimeters in width. Anthurium andraeanum uses insects to pollinate its crimson flowers with garnet touches endowed with hermaphroditic reproductive units. Finally: this species has evergreen leaves.

Needs:
The species Anthurium andraeanum will develop better in soils with acid, neutral or alkaline pH. Its underground part will grow vigorously in supports with a loamy, clayey or very clay texture, these can be kept generally moist. Taking into account the above information, we will have to adapt the risks to an intermediate point (trying to keep the soil moisture stable) taking into account factors such as: temperature, sun exposure, humidity, texture of the support, etc. An interesting aspect to comment is that it does not tolerate parking, so the planting area must be very well drained.

Regarding your lighting needs, we can say that it is very demanding, you can only place yourself in a semi-shaded place so as not to negatively affect your growth in a normal way.

With regard to its hardness against adverse conditions we can say that the minimum range of temperatures it can deal with are those of Zone 10, not surviving frost, it can tolerate moderate winds perfectly, it tolerates pollution and its rate of growth in conditions optimal is medium.

This variety could be attacked by plagues of aleuródidos, cocoideos, mites and aphids. In so far as diseases can be affected by fungi.

Decorative uses:
Almost without a doubt someone can find a decorative use for this species, but due to several factors, we have decided not to include a specific use. Anyway: there is nothing better than imagination try something new!

This species has no medicinal use that we have documented. However, we continue working to offer new content and it is possible that in the future new information will be shown.
