Anthurium Pallidiflorum is a rare and stunning plant that boasts long, pendulous, velvet leaves in a deep green hue. 

In the past, this plant has been confused with Anthurium Vittarifolium (and some are still selling vittarifolium as Pallidiflorum). Anthurium Pallidiflorum has longer, more slender leaves with a velvety texture that can reach up to 2 feet in length. On the other hand, Anthurium Vittarifolium has slightly shorter, wider leaves that are also pendulous in shape, but with a satin - glossy finish. Anthurium Pallidiflorum has very deep green leaves, while Anthurium Vittarifolium's leaves are a little lighter in colour. 

The plant pictured is the one you will receive. 

 Velvet leaf Anthuriums such as this one need very specific conditions to thrive. This is not an easy care plant. 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 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%.


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.

My wish list plant. Glad I got it.

Glad I got my hand on it

Been on my wish list for some time and now I’ve finally got my hands on it. It’s a beautiful plant. Can’t wait it it grows to maturity (if I don’t kill it first🤞🏼)
