Anthurium Magnificum x Crystallinum Hybrid
Anthurium Magnificum x Crystallinum Hybrid has beautiful foliage which looks even more attractive than the originals. It doesn’t have the square or round shaped petiole like magnificum or crystallinum respectively. Instead its petiole is D shaped. Anthurium Crystallinum and Anthurium Magnificum are not the same plant.
The big and bold leaves clearly mention its natural links with jungle. However, with proper care, it can dwell equally well in indoor environments. The green-leafed Magnificum is magnificent enough to decorate any corner of your home or garden.
Like all Anthurium species, Anthurium Magnificum x Crystallinum Hybrid changes as it grows. The juvenile leaf blades sometimes only vaguely resemble the adult blades. Anthurium species are known to be highly variable and not every leaf of every specimen will always appear the same. New leaf blades as well as the undersides of the adult leaf and petiole are sometimes tinged red-violet.
Like other Anthuriums it also doesn’t like direct sunlight and the leaves can be burned. Keep in bright indirect light and well draining media. It doesn’t need much care but while doing so always think about the Amazon rain forest. This plant requires a lot of humidity to grow well. That’s why it is better to place this plant with other indoor plants.
This is a popular member of its genus, grown for its admirable foliage. The Columbian native plant is an evergreen, epiphytic perennial, introduced in 1865. Juvenile leaves with burgundy shades mature into 90cm dark-green coriaceous(leathery) leaves with prominent white veining.
