Paddle-Leaf Anthurium (Anthurium Coriaceum)
Originating from South America this beauty is one of the most attractive Birds Nest Anthuriums getting around! It produces very large paddle-shaped leaves with a prominent midrib. The leaves are matte-subvelvety in texture which basically means they look satin in the right light. Velvety and matte-subvelvety leaves are the result of special cells in the outer layer of the leaves which allow them to absorb diffuse light better and shed water more efficiently than plants with glossy leaves. They are a common adaptation among tropical understory plants, particularly in the genus Araceae of which Anthuriums, Philodendons, Alocasia and many others are a part.
Wait until the top few centimetres of potting media has dried out before watering heavily. Water less in the cooler months to replicate the tropical dry season. When actively growing these plants will require regular watering to keep them moist however they should be potted in a very light, coarse media to ensure adequate drainage and prevent them becoming waterlogged.
Lots of bright indirect light and a humid position is great for these beauties but they are also very happy in a lower light environment like a bathroom (provided it gets some natural light). They are pretty tolerant of cooler temperatures and can be grown outdoors in most Sydney suburbs that don't experience regular winter frosts.
Currently about 30cm tall but the leaves themselves can eventually grow to a bit over a meter long making them an absolutely breathtaking feature plant if you have the space. If you don't have the space it's time to start chucking out some furniture!

Caring for your Paddle-Leaf Anthurium (Anthurium Coriaceum)
Our special eco packaging
No Plant Stress
Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.
The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!
Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.
The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
Please note, due to quarantine restrictions on plants and soil, we are not able to deliver plants to WA, NT and TAS.
