Often considered the best in the genus, Anthurium Forgetii makes for a perfect houseplant. Emulating tropical plants, this anthurium brings the jungle to the home. Velvet leaves with beautiful silver veining make it one of the more unusual plants on the houseplant market.
A native of Columbia and Ecuador, the Anthurium Forgetii is a descendant from the Arcae family. But this one differs from its relatives in that it is an epiphytic, terrestrial type of plant.
The Forgetii is also claimed to be a little bit on the fussy side compared to its other Anthurium family members. Yet, with the right Anthurium Forgetii care and attention, it’s possible to acclimatize this plant to your unique home environment. So, you can look forward to growing this plant for many wonderful years to come.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light.
• Water: Anthurium Forgetii should remain slightly moist throughout the growing season, which means letting that top layer of soil work its way toward dryness before watering. Decreasing watering a little in winter and increasing in summer.
• Considerations: Forgetii thrive in a humidity level around 60%. Will not fare well amongst fans, air conditioners, and heaters. If regularly exposed to these, they will begin to display signs of damage.
