Anthurium Superbum is a stunning upright bird's nest variety of anthurium. We love its broad, pointed leaves and easy care! It adds sculptural interest to your home and stands out from the crowd of the more commonly seen pothos and philodendrons.
CARE + MAINTENANCE
Light + temperature
Bright indirect light. Avoid direct sun. 65 - 70°F.
During the warmer months, when this plant is growing actively, the soil should remain evenly moist (though not wet) and should not be allowed to dry out. Some people recommend watering by placing several ice cubes on the soil. This plant is dormant in winter and watering should be reduced significantly. Take care not to get the leaves wet.
Toxic to pets. Please contact your veterinarian if you suspect your pet has ingested this plant.
Anthuriums prefer plenty of humidity. This is a great plant to keep in a steamy bathroom or near a humidifier, and away from heater vents and fans that can dry the air out rapidly.
Why does my anthurium have brown spots on its leaves?
Direct sun can cause large sections of anthurium leaves to become brown and crispy. Your anthurium will do best in a nice bright area, not pressed against a hot south facing window.
Smaller, speckled brown spots with yellow patches are a sign of leaf blight, a type of bacteria. This has the potential to infect the whole plant and spread to others. If it is only on the leaves, the entire leaf should be removed. If the entire plant is diseased, it will almost certainly kill the plant.
