The Anthurium Clarinervium plant is not an ordinary houseplant. The special leaves make this plant a real eye-catcher. The leaves are heart-shaped, dark in color and velvety to the touch.
It is almost impossible to imagine that this plant also grows in the wild. The Anthurium Clarinervium grows native to the southernmost areas of Mexico. There they grow to about 40 centimeters high.
Like every plant, the Anthurium Clarinervium also has specific wishes with regard to care. Proper care contributes to growth and keeps the plant healthy. Good for the plant, good for yourself.
The leaves of the Anthurium Clarinervium grow on thick, sturdy stems that can grow up to 2 centimeters wide. It has to be, because a leaf can grow up to 30 centimeters long. Such a stem must therefore be quite sturdy! A young plant often has smaller leaves. These are not yet that beautiful dark green, but rather a kind of brown/orange. The young leaf does have all those characteristic, light green veins. As a plant gets older, the color of the leaves changes. These will be dark green on the front and light green on the back.
They also get that velvety texture. You will see that an older plant will also start to produce larger leaves. A new leaf is therefore usually larger and is always rolled out above the older leaves. For example, a plant grows taller as it ages.
The Anthurium Clarinervium comes from southern Mexico. Then you would say “this is a sun worshiper”. Nothing is less true. In the wild, this plant grows in the shade of the much higher plants. The sun will only shine directly on the leaves in the morning and evening.
Direct sunlight can cause serious damage to the beautiful leaves of this plant, but it does need a lot of light to grow well.
The ideal location is therefore a place where the plant receives a lot of light, but not direct sun. Incidentally, a little sunlight in the morning and evening is no problem. It mainly concerns the hot afternoon sun, especially in summer. It can scorch the leaf.
Watering is one of the most important aspects of plant care. Over-watering creates soggy soil and can eventually lead to root rot. So it's better to give too little than too much. The best way is to water only when the top 2 inches of the soil have dried. You can check this by sticking your finger in the potting soil. Does soil stick to your finger? Then the soil is still too wet and you don't water yet.
