ABC Wednesday-A For Anthurium

Well, this is the first time I join this wonderful MEME-ABC Wednesday, My post of “A”-A for Anthurium

Anthuriums are one of the easy grow plants in Singapore. It has attractive foliage and under the proper environment, produce long lasting flowers year round. Potted Anthurium is easy to survive as an indoor foliage plant but it needs plenty of light, if you see anthurium with long, stretching leaves, it means the light is too low. It needs well drained soil too.
Local type are small and with the kind of faded colour, unlike those imported fresh cut Anthuriums flowers are so big and looks almost unreal. I have seen many colour of Anthurium in flower shop, red, burgundy, white, pink, orange, green,  and brown… The blossoms are thick, shiny, ribbed and wrinkled, as for leaves, they are large and shiny.
Anthurium flower is also called Flamingo lily. Fresh cut Anthurium flowers are long lasting too, the vase life will last at least 10 days, adds a special look to floral arrangements and are utilized used with all types of flowers and other tropical blooms.
Share with you some of my pictures of Anthurium flowers taken in the past few months, enjoy and visit ABC Wednesday for more things start with “A’.

Easy to grow is what I need. I wonder if they'd grow in my climate (Albany, NY USA)
