Anthurium veitchii, is an epiphytic species of flowering plant in the genus Anthurium native to Colombia. It is grown in more temperate climates as a greenhouse or houseplant for its large, pendulous leaves.


Anthurium veitchii grows from the branches of a tree rather than in the soil,  Natural variation within this species is one of the most commonly misunderstood concepts among many collectors, not every leaf of every plant needs to look alike to be the same species! 


Grow as an epiphyte, our Anthurium veitchii is potted in a mixture of Premium CoCoCoir Blend.  The CoCoCoir Blend encourages roots development ensuring free drainage, minerals, and moisture retention.  The plants were established in a 40cm (16 inch) plastic bowl with free drainage.  Recently potted up due to strong root development. 


Grown in environmentally controlled fogging to maintain high humidity through all seasons, and bright indirect natural lighting,a selection of carbon-rich organic food that helps boost microbial populations and help nutrient uptake to be optimised ensuring root development, density and spatial distribution, growth, and survival of our Aroids
