Anthurium Bugatti Red / Painter's Palette - 55cm

This little fellow has origins in Mexico, Argentina and also parts of the Caribbean. His uniquely shaped waxy blooms are brightly coloured, making him a popular choice of plant. for the enthusiast and plant lover alike.  They're an ideal houseplant or decoration for the office if you need/want flowers that'll last for a reasonable length of time.

They are quite slow growing, and in low light will hardly grow at all.  However, get them into a bright location and keep them damp and they'll send out new leaves and reflower!  If the light levels are too low they won't flower again.

  • Pets & People - Toxic to cats and dogs, and the sap can cause a skin reaction

Basic Care Tips:

  • Light - It prefers a light spot... but not in direct sunlight ideally.  Just on flowering, if the spathe (pointy bit in centre of flower) turns greenish, it's a sign its not getting enough light.
  • Water - Keep the soil damp but not drenched.  Also, if it's in a dark location it'll use less water than if it's in a brighter spot.
  • Food - give it a feed once every 2 months during the growing season.
  • Temperature - Warmth is order of the day, so nothing lower than 16°C and for strong growth, 20°C is best.  If you're struggling to keep above 16°C ease back on feeding and watering.
  • Repotting - Not a huge task, every couple of years in spring using normal houseplant compost.
  • Cleaning - A quick wipe down with a clean, damp duster will keep this plant clean.  It looks amazing when sprayed with some leafshine so give that a go!
