General Care 

Light

Thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate leaves.

Water

The Anthurium Crystallinum enjoys moderately moist soil. Water it thoroughly once the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, ensuring good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

Humidity

Being a native to the rainforests of Central and South America, Anthurium Crystallinum thrives in high humidity. Aim to provide humidity levels of 60% or more. You can achieve this by misting the leaves regularly, placing the plant on a pebble tray filled with water, or using a humidifier.

Fun Facts!

The velvety texture of the leaves is responsible for its common name "crystallinum," as it appears covered in tiny crystals.

While the heart-shaped leaves steal the show, the plant also produces spathes, modified leaves surrounding the flowers. These spathes come in various colors, including shades of green, white, and even deep burgundy.

Anthurium Crystallinum is an epiphytic plant in its natural habitat, meaning it grows on other plants or trees without being parasitic.
