This is a beautiful hybrid created by us in 2023:

The mother plant in this cross is: The Doc Block Purple F2 that expresses a beautiful dark purple emergent that goes to a black to a very dark green with big silver veins and textured leaf. 


The pollen donor is: A. Luxurians , the genetics we used exhibits  a wider sinus and very dark leaf color. 

Anthurium luxurians, also known as the Quilted Heart Anthurium, is a unique and dramatic species within the Anthurium genus. It features dark bronze-green foliage with extremely thick leaves, distinguishing it from other Anthurium species with its quilted texture and robust appearance​

This is an exciting new Hybrid that we made earlier this year between two very special Anthuriums. The small seedlings are already showing some interesting characteristics.  The leaves are a beautiful silver / blue glaucous color with a dark emergent that is showing some purple hues in some plants. Will be a very interesting plant to watch grow and observe the leaf morphology change from seedling to adult.

Anthurium Growing Tips and Care

  • Anthuriums thrive in bright filtered light, but we recommend avoiding direct sunlight.
  • They appreciate nice humidity levels, but aren't too picky about humidity.
  • These plants would do best in a semi-coarse potting mix and we recommend letting the (roughly top 2") of soil media  dry on the top of the soil before watering.
  • We recommend potting in a well-draining, coarse, and slightly acidic potting soil with rich in organic matter and  suggest repotting this fast-growing anthurium every two to three years.
  • We advise cutting off yellowing or browning leaves as they appear to keep the plant looking tidy and to discourage pests. 

Here are some more tips for caring for a velvety anthurium:

  • Water when the top 2 inches of soil are dry.
  • Keep the soil just barely moist but not soggy.
  • Keep the plant in a spot that gets plenty of bright, indirect light but no direct sunshine.
  • Keep the plant in a warm room that's around 60f-85f away from draughts and radiators.
  • Keep the plant in a bathroom or conservatory to raise humidity.
  • Group plants together to help raise humidity.
  • water with diluted fertilizer monthly during the growing season.
  • Avoid temperature fluctuations.
  • Repot as needed to give room for roots to expand.
  • water more thoroughly in spring and summer, in winter season the velvet anthurium slows active growth.
  • If you see salts crusting on the soil surface, it's time to flush the soil.
  • Run a gentle stream of water through it for a few minutes to get rid of excess fertilizer
  • If the leaves start to yellow, brown, or wilt, this may be a sign of overwatering or underwatering.
