Plant Features

The Purple Anthurium, also known as the Flamingo Flower, is a striking and exotic houseplant known for its vivid purple, heart-shaped spathes and a contrasting spadix. These spathes, often mistaken for flowers, are actually modified leaves meant to attract pollinators to the small flowers on the spadix. The plant's dark green, glossy leaves add further to its ornamental charm. Anthuriums are prized for their long-lasting blooms and can bring a splash of tropical color to indoor environments.

For troubleshooting, brown leaf tips or edges can be a sign of low humidity or over-fertilization. Increase humidity around the plant and ensure you're not overfeeding. Yellowing leaves is a common sypmtom of overwatering. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. Keep an eye out for common pests like aphids and mealybugs. If detected, treat the plant with an appropriate insecticide or neem oil.
