Anthurium plowmanii 'Wave of Love' - bird's nest Anthurium
DESCRIPTION: Ornamental shrub-like Anthurium with broad long wavy-edged green leaves. This variety does not flower in the normal Anthurium way but does produce a spadix with red seeds. USE IN: Tropical garden settings as a border or for creating depth using layers in under planting. Suited to containers and indoor gardens. PLANTING: Plant in sheltered position, avoid direct sunlight. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Protect from frost and cold, and provide plenty of water during dry periods. Plant away from areas where children and pets play as the leaves contain a poisonous substance. CARE: For maximum flowering period provide plenty of bright, filtered light, approx. 4 hours of sunlight. Protect from frost and keep moist during dry periods. Anthuriums thrive in warm humid conditions. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid based fertiliser every 2-4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. For indoor plants - wipe leaves gently with a damp cloth if you notice them collecting dust, this will refresh the foliage to its usual glossy finish. Re-pot container plants at the beginning of spring. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1m H x 70cm W. YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
