Anthurium 'Orange Glow'

Anthuriums easily come to mind when one thinks of tropical flora. This exotic flower comes in varying shades of white, green, purple, cream, pink, red and orange. Obake types are blends of two or more colours.

I am not that fond of orange anthuriums, but the cultivar 'Orange Glow' is quite nice. The spathe opens bright orange (that really does seem to glow) and fades to a lighter peach colour as it ages. The photo below does not quite capture the beauty and colour of this anthurium cultivar.


Anthuriums are easy to grow once a few conditions are met. Avoid direct sunlight, but too much shade will inhibit overall growth and flower production. Well draining soil is a must as these plants easily rot from waterlogged conditions. Fertilize moderately to encourage blooms.

For more information on anthuriums see Oglesby Plants cultural notes here.

Anthuriums are one of my favourites. An endearing feature is that it is almost fade-proof.

That certainly is a bright orange color! I have never seen an anthurium where the center part (yikes, don't know the proper botanical name!) is orange, too. Wishing you a nice week!
