This plant is also known as the flamingo flower. The colorful nature of the flamingo flower has made it a popular houseplant. The flower grows in the form of a long, sometimes curly, spike. When cared for properly, flamingo flowers can provide a colorful touch to any home.
Perlite, pine bark or gravel may be mixed with the peat moss to provide additional aeration. Water flamingo flowers thoroughly with warm water and allow soil to dry slightly between watering. Anthuriums prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Anthurium is poisonous if ingested, so keep it out of reach of children or pets. It may also cause skin irritation, so consider wearing gloves while potting.
