One of the most stunning hybrids we've had available. We love the contrast of the new dusty pink leaves emerging on the plant with the deep green of the matured leaves. The plant you see if the plant you will receive.
Velvet leaf Anthuriums such as this one need very specific conditions to thrive. We don't recommend this plant for all the brown thumbs out there. If you live in the southern states of Australia, we recommend a humidifier, greenhouse, or similar to house your velvet leaf anthuriums. These plants are endemic to the tropics, and therefore require warmth and humidity to grow. Some collectors push the limits of these plants, growing them in below optimal conditions, but we don't recommend this unless you are an experienced grower.
This plant will be sent in its pot along with the hydroponic medium it is growing in.
We only ship plants on Mondays. Please order before 2pm on Suday to esure your plant will be sent the following Monday. Orders placed after this time may not be shipped untill the followin week.
We only ship plants to non-quarantine states (sorry sorry WA, TAS and NT residents). Shipping of plants is capped at $15.00 per order. This includes the packing materials and labour times. We use recycled packing where possible to reduce our waste and keep cost down, but we ensure that all packing material is sturdy enough to resist damage during transit.
If no one is home to receive your order, the parcel will be left in a safe place. We will not request signature on delivery, as parcels sent back to the post office may not get picked up for days, therefore increasing the amount of stress placed on the plant(s) inside.
This plant can also be picked up from the Northern Wellbeing Centre; 113C miller st, Epping VIC. If you select this option at check-out, we will email you to organise a pick-up time.
Current growing conditions
This plant has been propagated and grown in hydroponics medium. All of our hydroponics plants are potted up in leca, perlite, or MAB grow, and left sitting in 1 - 2 cm of nutrient solution at all times. Our nutrient solution is made up of Growth Technology Foliage Focus or Complete Focus diluted to 5 ml per litre of water.
Before being sent to you, this plant was growing in our climate controlled grow room. Temperatures sit abouve 20 C at all times, and relative humidity does not drop below 60%.
Suggested care on arrival
This plant will arrive in its pot along with the hydroponic medium it is currently growing in. If you would ike to continue growing this plant as we have, in a hydroponic medium, then all you need to do it sit it in a shallow container of nutrient water.
In general, we find that plants transition from hydroponics mediums to soil without any issues. However, if you want to transition the plant into soil with extra caution, then you can keep it in the medium it arrived in for a few days. This will allow your plant to acclimate to your environment before transitioning to a new medium. You will need to sit the pot in 1 - 2 cm of water to prevent the roots from drying out. Long term the plant will need nutriets added to the water, but if you only plan to grow it this way for a week or so then it'll be fine without the addition of nutrients.
When ready, you can pot the plant up in a well-draining soil mix. 50% premium potting mix and 50% perlite works well, but adding .extra amendments such as orchid bark for extra drainage can help in creating an optimum soil mix. These extra amendments should especailly be used for anthuriums, which require extra drainage. If you require more specific information about soil mix, please contact us.
