Anthurium cutucuense

Anthurium cutucuense


Anthurium cutucuense is an Ecuadorean endemic with amazingly bizarre trisect leaves with a bullate texture.  The species is limited to a few mountainous areas where it grows climbing through cool forest habitats.  This plant has some different cultivational requirements than most other Anthuriums.  The plants succeed best under humid and cool conditions (days in the 70's and low 80's with nights dropping into the 50's and 60's. Sound familiar? I haven't tried growing it outside in San Francisco yet but ....... I sure am curious.)

IMPORTANT: Please note that this is a threatened species. This plant was obtained locally (NOT imported) from a sustainable source, but many plants circulating in cultivation are not.  Never be afraid to ask sellers about the history and source of their plants.
