Greetings All,

Has anyone here kept one of these massive plants in their homes?
I found one at a local nursery for $60. It's in an approx. 1 gal. container and has about 3' of spread thus far. I was told it can get very large. Any personal experience information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
John R.

John,

Are you referring to anthurium luxuriens?

John,

Ha! Hookeri gets huge! Natural selections has them for sale and the price is always worth it since they send huge plants. An adult plant could do some damage to you if it fell on you. All anthuriums do much better in greenhouses. However, I have had some luck with growing anthurium luxuriens plus a few others. It's just a matter of cutting back the roots and taking out larger leaves before they start to take over the "sun".
