Anthurium livescens (Royal Awe) is a plant native to the tropical regions of South America. It can reach heights of 5 to 10 ft tall depending on its environment and the level of care. It is recommended to plant them in a semi-shady area as they need a balanced environment that is neither too sunny nor too dark.
Regular watering is necessary. It is important to use a well-draining soil mix with a pH level of 5 to 6.5, which allows the roots to breathe and stay healthy. Regular fertilization with a balanced fertilizer is recommended during the summer months. Proper drainage is necessary to keep the soil from becoming too wet, and the frequency of watering should be decreased during the winter months. For those living in cold regions, it is advisable to bring the plant indoors for the winter and place it in a bright, cold room while keeping the soil moist.
Anthurium livescens can bring beauty to gardens, backyards, balconies, and patios of USDA zones 9-11. They are fairly easy to care for, but require a little attention and knowledge.
This plant is truly majestic and awe-inspiring, with its glossy, papery leaves that can reach at least 3-4 ft long each in an elongated triangular shape hanging towards the earth. The plant produces delicate inflorescence with white spadix and green spathe.
