The Flamingo Plant

The Anthurium never fails to attract people with the stylish beauty of its flowers.
It is also called the Flamingo Plant and the Boy Plant because of the structure of its inflorescence. Belonging to the Arum family,it is the native of tropical America, introduced to India not long ago. Our neighbouring state of Kerala leads in its cultivation. The flowers and plants of anthurium are exported.
The anthurium is easy to grow in tropical regions. It flowers through the year and the flowers last for a long time. The flowers look great in a flower arrangement.


  1. Hello Lotusleaf! Is the bottom one very big in size? I saw similar one in the nursery here that are very huge. I like the extra-ordinary look of the inflorescence. They look nice in any hue of pink or red. Btw, I have not seen an anthurium so red as shown in your first pic. That's really captivating. Have a pleasant evening.

  2. Stephanie, yes, the bottom one is pretty big in size. It looks nice in a vase too.

  3. It's an impressive flower, but somehow I never liked it at all :/

    It's very common in Europe; I guess it adapts quite well as a house plant.

  4. Colors glisten.
    Thank you for showing wonderful flowers.

  5. They help to build the imagination of the child and make for
    wonderful past times that work the brain and the creative faculties.

    all the games and this is a great way to get
    younger fans into game play beyond computers. Included in the furnishings for this
    area are several books, a telescope, and the Vanishing Cabinet.
