About Flamingo Flower Pink
The Pink Flamingo Flower is a variety of Anthurium andraeanum, differentiated by the colour of its modified spathes. Its scientific name Anthurium means "Tail Flower" in Greek and refers to the tail-shaped flower that protrudes from its colourful spathe. They have been introduced to many subtropical regions as an outdoor plant and is a popular houseplant across the world.
The Flamingo flower is native to Columbia and Ecuador, where it thrives in tropical humidity and warmth. Anthuriums are epiphytic, meaning ithey grows on other trees.
Flamingo flowers like bright, indirect sunshine and do not like direct sun rays, except in the winter months. Their soil should be kept moist, with only the top few centimetres of soil drying out between watering. The Flamingo flower enjoys humidity and should be misting regularly, particularly in the winter months. In the spring and summer, Flamingo Flowers like to be fed with a liquid fertiliser every two weeks or so. Spent blooms should be pruned to encourage new flowering.
Did you know?
Despite the appearance, the "flower" part of the Flamingo Flower is actually a modified leaf rather than a true flower. Its flowers are really small and are found on the spike protruding from the coloured leaf.
If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.
