Did you know that breeder Floricultura has more than the world-famous phalaenopsis? They have an absolutely gorgeous and colorful assortment of potted anthuriums as well. Check this out.

The Leaf, the Spathe, the Spadix, and the Flower

If you talk about the flower or flower leaf of an anthurium, the vast majority of professionals in the floral chain mean that big red, white, purple, or whatever-colored thing that is the eye-catcher of this plant. No problemo, just for the curious among us, a brief explanation about what's what when we dissect the anthurium.

The anthurium plant is built up of three components. First, there is the leaf, mostly green and hanging around the stem. Higher up, on top of the stem, you'll find the colorful spathe, of which the anthurium's color is described. So, if you buy a red anthurium, it means the spathe is red. This part is often mistakingly called the flower. The actual flower is found on the spadix, that pointy ribbed thing sticking out of the spathe.

What counts for the value of an anthurium, besides a unique color, is the number and size of the spathes, and the pot diameter.

Orange: Anthurium Alegria

The flowers of variety Alegria do not die and dry out like other varieties. They gradually change their color back to green. This will turn the plant into a foliage plant.

White: Anthurium Sincero

Anthurium Sincero fits in any room, in any office, and in any shop you can imagine. The neutral, yet pristine white color enlightens the space you place it in.
