Hands down our favorite species in the genus - also known as the Queen Anthurium! Anthurium warocqueanum is known as the Queen Anthurium and it's easy to see why. The species can produce leaves up to 4 feet long. It appreciates high humidity, good soil drainage and is a heavy feeder. We recommend an extended release fertilizer such as osmocote/nutricote applied at about half label strength. We grow our plants in our warm greenhouse; however, we've seen other specimens grown very well in greenhouses targeted for cooler growers. The preference for the individual plant may depend on ecotype or it could be that many plants just aren't that sensitive to temperature specifically.
It's reported that there are a range of ecotypes of warocqueanum with some exhibiting darker, more narrow leaves while others are greener and wider. Leaf appearance can be polymorphic based on conditions and age so it's difficult to discern which ecotype the plants available here represent with certainty but most seem to be on the dark and narrow side compared to others we've raised at a similar size.
Plants for sale are well established with good roots (most you can see at the surface of the pot if you look closely).
Most of our products come with multiple shipping options. For those that are unpotted, you can add Pots and Soil a la carte.
The pre-order plants came very quickly on a recent import (it will be 4 days from origin on Monday) and are in good shape so we feel comfortable offering them; however, please note that since this is a recent import, it is subject to Pre-order terms. The item will ship immediately but must be sent UPS Next day or USPS Priority Express. Note that pre-order items are intended for experienced growers. The plants will need to be acclimated after some time in transit and may have some cosmetic damage such as broken or senesced leaves. Live arrival is guaranteed but we can't guarantee anything beyond that.
