Anthurium ellipticum ‘Jungle King’
🚚 Free UK shipping on orders over £60 🪴
Native to the Amazon this stunning Anthurium is grown for its thick, green, leaves with deep veins. It is the perfect plant to add to your own indoor jungle.
Anthuriums are native to South America and the Caribbean. They can be epiphytic and are often found growing on trees in highly humid environments.
The Anthurium genus is renowned for its most commonly seen varieties with colourful, long-lasting blooms which are actually called 'spathes'. The colourful spathes can last as long as 6 weeks before dying back. However, rarer forms of Anthurium are sought-after for their impressive leaves rather than their spathes.
