Anthurium luxurian (small)
  • Anthurium luxurian (small)

    Anthurium luxurian is a stunning beauty with corrugated, bullate deep green leaves. Younger leaves are lighter, but they become dark green as the plant matures. Be careful with leaf scarring, the plant's leaves are very sensitive and quick to dry out and scar. This is purely cosmetic and new leaves will emerge fine.


    It's native to Colombia and was first introduced around 2005.


    Water & Humidity; Water when topsoil is dry. Anthurium Luxurian thrives in humid conditions, ideally is between 60% - 70% humidity. When ready to water make sure to water thoroughly and all around. I like to bring my plants to the sink for a good soak and then I let them drain completely. I usually place it on a saucer and empty it several times until there is no water coming out of the pot or left on the saucer.

    Light: They can be grown in medium to lower light.

    Potting Medium & Fertilizer; like many epiphytic aroids, they need a well-draining mix; perlite, coco coir, orchid bark will do the trick. You can grow in sphagnum moss but will need to incorporate nutrients. They benefit from fertilizer throughout spring and summer because they aren't super fast growers. Use a slow-release fertilizer and/or houseplant fertilizer and make sure to follow the packaging instructions (less is more.) I recommend new plant parents begin with slow-release fertilizers because they are more forgiving than liquid fertilizers. If you don't measure liquid fertilizers properly you could easily end up with leaf or root burn.


      HOW TO GROW:

      Grow Anthuriums in medium to bright light or under artificial lights (if you don't have enough natural light in your home) to encourage growth.  

      Water anthuriums enough to keep the soil slightly moist, but not wet. They do not like wet feet (roots.)

      Fertilize in the spring through  summer with a general all-purpose houseplant fertilizer or slow-release fertilizer. (Follow the directions on the fertilizer packaging.)

      Anthuriums also appreciate warm humid temperatures so make sure to protect them from cold drafts. Like many aroids, they need above-average humidity to do their best but can acclimate to other conditions.
