    Did you know that the vibrant red or pink flowers of the Anthurium amnicola are not actually flowers, but are modified leaves called spathes? The true flowers of the plant are the tiny, yellow-green clusters found on the spadix, which is the central spike in the center of the spathe. These unique and beautiful blooms make Anthurium amnicola a popular choice for adding color and interest to indoor and outdoor spaces.

    Keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Water less in the winter and more in the summer. Do not allow the plant to sit in water. Water thoroughly, ensuring water reaches the roots.


    Anthurium amnicola prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. If grown indoors, place the plant near a window that receives plenty of light but is protected from direct sunlight.


    This plant prefers a high level of humidity. Mist the leaves regularly or place the plant on a humidity tray. A humidity level of 60-80% is ideal.


    Feed monthly with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season (spring to fall). Do not feed during the winter.

    Pests & Deficiencies:

    Common pests include spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Keep an eye out for yellowing leaves, which can indicate a nutrient deficiency. Treat pests promptly with an insecticidal soap or horticultural oil.


    : Propagate Anthurium amnicola by division or stem cuttings. Cut a stem just below a node (the point where leaves attach to the stem) and remove the bottom leaves. Plant the cutting in well-draining soil and keep it moist until roots have formed.

    In conclusion, Anthurium amnicola is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for plant that is well suited to a bright, warm, and humid environment. By following the guidelines outlined above, you can ensure that your plant thrives and continues to produce stunning flowers and foliage.
