Anthurium radicans is popular for its large, heart-shaped, caudate leaves. It is a tropical plant that is naturally found creeping over the trees in the rainforests of Brazil. It is the only species from the Chamaerepium section of Anthuriums. The leaves are bullate and deeply veined. It has exotic, showy flowers that are pinkish to maroon in colour.
Its strikingly-shaped leaves and average height makes it a perfect choice as a houseplant that can be grown in terrariums, living rooms, and home gardens. This species has been cross-bred with many other ones to produce new hybrids with extra-remarkable features. However, all of its hybrids are sterile.
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 is a long-lasting and easy-to-grow plant, which are two other causes for its widespread admiration. This tropical plant does not require too much maintenance. The Anthurium Radicans plant enjoys growing in moist, well-drained soil with dappled sunlight. It thrives in mild temperatures and has moderate watering needs. It can be called a water-loving plant. However, over-watering can lead to extensive damage.
