Anthurium faustomirandae 14"
! NOT ELIGIBLE FOR SHIPPING !
Originally collected in 1952 by Spanish botanist Faustino Miranda at San Fernando, Mexico - this sp. is endemic to the Mexican state of Chiapas at elevations of 2,100 to 3,200 feet. The area of Bosque Tropical Perennifolio in the mountain region between Yajalon and Tila is the only place in northeastern Chiapas where it can be found for certain. Here it grows primarily lithophytically/epipetrically on limestone rocks. Commonly known as ‘Faustino’s Giant’ - and for good reason, with leaves able to reach massive sizes. There is some debate about the maximum potential leaf size, but it’s not unheard of for well-grown specimens to exceed 4 feet in length.
Anthurium faustomirandae enjoys bright indirect to partial/full direct sun exposure, a chunky, well-draining potting mix, moderate to high temps, and would thrive in higher humidity levels. Likes to dry thoroughly in-between waterings.
May need to be repotted every 1-2 years.
Toxic to pets.
