Anthuriums are a blooming plant that have tiny flowers crowded in a spadix, which is sometimes referred to as a "rat's tail" due to its appearance. The spadix is subtended by a spathe (red, bract like leaf).
Flaming lily is readily available at local plant shops and is a popular house plant because of its long lasting flowers. Flamingo lilies also have a long vase life and can stay fresh in a flower vase for up to 14 days.
Being from the tropics warmth and humidity are essential elements for your Anthurium. Minimum temperatures of 60-70 F is recommended for blooming and a daily misting is helpful with bloom longevity.
Although capable of flowering year round most plants grown in the home will enter a dormant period between October and February. During periods of dormancy water sparingly and withhold fertilizer.
