Anthurium plowmanii is a variable species and may produce leaf blades with widely varying forms. Named in honor of botanist Timothy Plowman (1944-1989). Anthurium plowmanii ranges from western and northern Brazil into Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay. Unlike most rainforest plants, Anthurium plowmanii can grow in extremely dry conditions and is often the only evergreen plant in some jungle areas during the dry season. This makes it a great indoor plant where air humidity is low.
Anthurium plowmanii is not difficult to grow provided you have the space. The species can become quite large. The soil mixture should contain peat, Perlite, and orchid potting media containing charcoal, bark and some rock. The plants can be grown in diffused light and is allowed to ocassionally dry.
