Anthurium veitchii is often referred to as the King Anthurium, and that name is no accident.  This plant gets humongous leaves up to 6.6 feet (2 meters) long. The leaves are strongly corrugated and look somewhat like nice abdominal abs. The veitchii is native to the South American Rainforests of Columbia. It is an epiphyte that grows on other trees in nature. In the home, the plants need very airy soil that is well-draining. This allows for air pockets to form as roots need air circulation to not develop rot.  Anthurium veitchii grows best in cooler temperatures. A temperature range between 59°F and 79°F is a good choice.  Keep humidity above 60%.
