Anthurium Jungle King

English name:

Anthurium Jungle King

Latin name:

Anthurium ellipticum 'Jungle King'

About me:

I am one of close to 1000 species of Anthurium found in the wild. My large, paddle-shaped leaves are the perfect jungle shape.

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from the tropics of South America.

Height/Growth

I can grow up to 90cm in height.

Light

I like a part shady spot best. Keep me away from direct sunlight.

Water

I like my soil to be moist, but not soggy so water me a little every few days.

Temperature

I like it warm so no rooms below 16°C please!

Feeding

Feed me every 6-8 weeks between March and September.

Grooming

Dust my large glossy leaves regularly.

Care

If you notice my leaves turning yellow, you're probably overwatering me. If they turn crispy at the edges, increase himudity around me and mist me.

Toxicity

I am toxic so please don't eat me.

Fact

The name anthurium is derived from two Greek words, anthos (flower) and oura (tail). So, a literal translation of the name would be “flowering tail”.
