Anthurium Vittarifolium is a striking tropical plant native to the rainforests of Colombia. Characterized by its elongated, glossy leaves that can grow up to 2 meters in length, this plant is a standout in any garden or indoor space. It is often misspelled as "Vittariifolium," but should correctly include two "i's."
When mature, Anthurium Vittarifolium boasts deep green, matte leaves that are textured like a leather belt. The leaves feature a prominent midrib and long petioles, and the plant is known to produce new growth frequently under optimal conditions. Additionally, it is known to have a large root system that may require frequent repotting.
Once it reaches maturity, Anthurium Vittarifolium may begin to produce inflorescences and self-pollinate. The resulting berries are pinkish-red in color, and the seeds are relatively easy to germinate.
