Anthurium hookeri Ruffles
Anthurium hookeri
Family: Araceae
Bird's Nest Anthurium
Origin: Ecuador And Colombia
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeKeep soil moistEpiphyteOrnamental foliage

For those that love jungly plants. Their enormous wrinkly leaves have an almost cardboard like texture and grow to about 2ft. Used in places that have good natural light and lots of space and could benefit from a little bit of drama... In the wild it is epiphytic or epilithic (meaning that it grows without soil either on trees, or in the rocks. Do not plant too deeply, keep moist but not soaked. Beware of slugs and snails, eliminate them with bait or pick them up at night. Wash the foliage regularly to control mites. Mulch abundantly, and fertilize monthly.

The true species produces white berries while the hybrid plant produces red berries.

Anybody could read Indonesian must agree the comments from Anthorium Biadab and M. Fadli Tirta. This is not because I'm a orchid lover but be realistic guys. However, if you want collection of super gigantic leaves from Indonesia. I have much and is free for you except you should pay the delivery cost. I called it Anthorium Dhaoun Phissange. The leaves could reach 6 feet length and consumable if you really hungry. You can reach me via email and I'll give you whatever you want.

Hmm, theres a huge demand for Anthurium species in Indonesia. The price are so high that I dont understand. It doesnt make any sense at all. The most aggressive player are those the opportunitic sellers and prestisse minded- newbie collectors.

The combination of media, nurseries plan and the consumtive behaviour leads to large booming of the Anthurium. I believe theres a shift to superbum or any anthurium which has non smooth leaf.

But I think the anthurium market will over in this year. People are tired with the high price from the seller and confusing names of the anthurium. Even the smallest inch of the leaf could lead to a new name. the consumers tend to be fooled by the sellers. But I cant blame the one who buy anthurium at 10x times more expensive than its usual price just because their lack of information.

wkkwkaw.saya sangat menyesal atas kebingungan para pecinta bunga diindonesia.saya dapat kabar bahwa anthorium,adenium ,dan lain2 di usa/canada/hawai,adalah bunga murah alias bunga kampung.
!!!inngat musim lohan di indonesia.itu semua adalah politik moneylaudrey dan penguatan nilai rupiah.ada oknum2 lain yg memanfaatkan hal tersebut.adenium antorium bukan bunga langka ingattt !!!! banyak para argobis di indonesia telah disuap supaya mengembor-gemborkan bunga biadab ini.
klo anda merasa bunga langka dan mahal,masihkah anda ingat raflesia arnoldy???bonsai jepang:
