This Anthurium is identified as a hybrid cross between Anthurium papillilaminum and Anthurium warocqueanum. The hybrid cross and its grex crosses were named Dark Mama. It has breathtaking shiny, velvet green leaves combined with elongated leaf blades and a beautiful venation, typical to its A. warocqueanum parentage.
Anthurium Dark Mama (papillilaminum × warocqueanum) is a rare aroid part of the family of Araceae.
Most Anthurium grow a small leaf from the last developed leaf. This new leaf expands rapidly over the next 7-21 days, depending on the amount of water/light/humidity.
Anthurium are generally easier to keep in place with lower light although this can result in much smaller leaves. Since they are tropical plants they are used to higher amounts of humidity (more than 60%). However, they can still grow decently in a more arid climate (40-60%). Anthurium prefer irregular periods of watering and like to get a lower amount of water once in a while.
Anthurium with more round heart shaped leaves are easier to take care for and therefore more suitable for a beginning plant parent. The ones with more textured and elongated leaves require a higher level of care.
NOTE: It is notoriously difficult to determine whether Anthurium specimens are pure cultivars or hybridisations with close relatives. This can only be determined by either genetic analysis or microscopic investigation of the inflorescence. We determine our plants to the best of our knowledge. Either way, they are cute as hell.
If you have feedback on the determination, please let us know, so we can adjust accordingly.
