You can grow Anthurium well indoors as a houseplant, or if you’re lucky enough to be able to live in a warmer climate, it grows in zones 10 and 11.

  1. I love Anthurium. I remember my Professor in my Botany class gave me a grade of 98% for doing my ‘Thesis’ about it. That was 25 years ago when computer is not much of the in-thing in my country and I have to research each of the different types and drew it by hand. The best project I did in college..hahaha..Loved it! At the moment all I could grow in my garden are the arum varieties like the white lilies which are considered weeds.


    • That’s awesome! Thank you so much for reading! I love plants that bring back memories =] I wish I was able to grow Anthurium but unfortunately it’s too cold outside. I bet I could get it to grow indoors….
