The Velvet Anthurium is a rare and exquisite plant, deserving a spot in every houseplant lovers collection. Striking silver venation contrasts against deep green, velvety, heart-shaped leaves, making it one of the most photogenic plants to have in your home. 

It is slightly more specific with its care than most other houseplants, needing lots of light, regular misting or a steamy bathroom. However, if you can master it, the rewards are well worth the effort.

Rare

Westerners only discovered it in the 1950s. It has not had long in popular cultivation and is a rare find in the houseplant world.

Worth The Wait

Taking roughly 5-8 years to reach maturity, this plant can get up to 70cm tall. Its leaves also grow larger and more impressive with age.

Functional Velvet

The velvet-like quality of the leaves helps wick water away from the foliage in the damp tropical understory and maximise light use in the deep shade.

Native to the exotic rainforests of Mexico, the velvet anthurium can be found growing at high altitudes out of the crevices of rocks or on the forest floor. 

The genus name 'Anthurium' roughly means 'tall flower', and the species name 'clarinervium' comes from the words' clari' meaning bright, and 'nervi' meaning fibre, likely in reference to the silvery-white veins.

Care Tips


Light
: This plant grows in the understory in the wild, often heavily shaded and with very little sunlight reaching it. However, for best growth at home, it requires bright light. It does not need direct sunlight and will burn in intense sunshine. 

Water: This plant enjoys a thorough watering; however, it needs to dry out between waterings. 

Humidity: High humidity will speed up the growth of this plant, with the leaves and veins turning brighter and greener when happy. Group with other plants to create a more humid environment.

Temperature: Warmer temperatures are better for this plant. Keep in environments between 15-25°C.
