Anthurium Clarinervium is also called the velvet cardboard anthurium is a stunning tropical plant that thrives indoors. This anthurium species has huge dark green, leathery, heart-shaped leaves that feature prominent creamy-white veins. Other common names for this tropical houseplant include ‘Queen Anthurium’ and ‘White-Veined Anthurium’. The name ‘Velvet Cardboard Anthurium’ comes from its thick, velvety leaves.

Light: Anthuriums need medium to bright light to bloom, but they will survive and grow (but not flower) in low light conditions. Choose a spot near a sunny window, but not in harsh direct sunlight

Water: Anthuriums have big, fleshy roots that rot easily in waterlogged soil, so they really only need to be watered once a week or so. You'll know when to water an anthurium if you allow the soil to dry out noticeably first. Don’t water again until the top inch or two of the potting mix is dry. Just use your finger to determine that.

Soil: Since these plants are epiphytes, they require fantastic drainage. To accomplish this, I like to add orchid bark to my potting mix. This is the “secret” to growing these plants.You can start with 1 part of orchid bark to 2-3 parts of whatever all-purpose peat-based houseplant potting soil that you like to use. This will provide the amazing amazing drainage that they need to thrive.You can also throw a handful of perlite in the mix for good measure.

Temperature: The right temperature for an Anthurium clarinervium depends on the time of year.For the growing season, the temperature for the plant needs to be between 64F (18C) to 70F (21C). This is the best range for the best growth.

In the hottest of conditions, the plant can thrive in temperatures up to 85F (29C).

Humidity: Anthurium clarinervium plants love high humidity. The humidity should be at least over 60%. But 80% is the best for this plant.

High humidity speeds up the plant’s growth. The leaves (and veins) will turn a brighter and green.

The easiest way to create humidity is by using a humidifier in the same room.

If you don’t want to spend money on a humidifier, we get it. There is a less pricey option to try out.

For this method, you need pebbles and a tray. Fill the tray to the top with the pebbles. Then add water to the tray until it’s just under the pebbles. You don’t want the water to cover them.

Now, all you have to do is place your plant pot on top of the pebbles. As the water evaporates, it creates humidity. That humidity goes straight to your plant.

ToxicityMildly poisonous to humans and pets if ingested.

Re-potting: Every 2-3 years on average. Needs a little TLC after repotting.

Origin: America, particularly northern parts of Argentina and Mexico, and the Caribbean.All anthurium plants grow as epiphytes or terrestrials.
