Botanical Description


Before sharing the Anthurium Clarinervium care guide, let’s discuss the botanical description of the plant. After reading this, the thing that comes to mind is why botanical description is important. It is because when you care for any plant more easily by knowing the details in deep about the plant.

The origin place of this beautiful plant is in chiapas, Mexico { in the southeast of Mexico} & Scientific name of the plant is Anthurium clarinervium Matuda. It belongs to the kingdom, Plantae. The family of the plant is Araceae, which belongs to the species clarinervium.

Morphology Of Anthurium Clarinervium

It is a Terrestrial plant. The height of the plant is 24 to 25 inches and the width of the spreading plant is approx 40 inches. We can also say Anthurium Clarinervium is a mountain plant because it can easily grow in a thin layer of soil on the rock.

It is a wild species, it can easily grow in less soil or rocky mountains. The wild environment is very favorable for this plant.

Anthurium Clarinervium flowerFlowers:- In this attractive plant after leaves, the most beautiful part of this plant is the flower. 🌸The color of the flower depends on the species of the plant and sometimes it also depends on the environmental condition of the plant.

Pink, white, green, and red are the most common colours of the flower. When the flower blooms, it looks eye-catching. For a good flower, the plant should be healthy and well-drained.

Leaves– The leaf of the plant is small in the initial stage according to the time plants mature and grow. The size of the leaf keeps growing; leaf of the plant; Anthurium is the most attractive part of the plant. The color of the leaf is purple, if we divide the color of the leaf at topside it is green & in the underside, it is light green, the shape of the leaf is a unique heart-shaped, pattern made from white veins of the leaf makes it more attractive, this is broad-leaf plant leaf can grow up to 12 inches, the leaf of the plant always grow from the top of the plant, by this plant increase the height.

Stem– The stem of the plant is thick and strong. The width of the plant is 2cm. This is very important for promoting plant growth. If plants have over one stem, it can be used for the propagation of the plant.

Soil requirement for Anthurium Clarinervium care

Soil is a very important factor in the growth and development of the plant. The selection of the right type of soil is very necessary for the proper growth of the plant.

Anthurium Clarinervium careAccording to my experience, & a combination of many other Anthurium growers’ experiences, growth of the plant in loose & well-aerated soil is very outstanding.

The common query that people used to ask is how to keep the soil in the pot loose and well aerated. There is only one way to keep it loose is continue to keep digging up plant root zones at proper time intervals.

Now the most important part is the potting mixture.

  • Peat moss:- we used to mix peat moss and soil in the ratio of 1:3, in which one part is peat moss and three parts are soil.
  • Coconut coir:- In the place of peat moss, we can use coconut coir at the same ratio as Peat moss. It is a matter of availability.
  • Perlite:- We use perlite by mixing with soil in the ratio of 1:3,  in which we use one part of perlite & three parts of soil.

Proper drainage is very important for the root of Anthurium Clarinervium. It is very sensitive to water. Roots of the plant get easily damaged by water lodging conditions.

The root of the plant is fibrous, it can uptake required water in very less time, the soil should be loose, and it allows quick drainage of water.

Proper balanced PH is very important for the growth and development of the plant. For this plant, it requires a PH of approximately 6.5 for wonderful growth and development.

Although the plant thrives on humidity and moisture, its roots can easily get damaged by water. The soil mix should be fibrous enough to allow quick draining of water from its roots. The pH level of the soil should be approx 6.5 to promote healthy growth.

Climatic Requirement For Anthurium Clarinervium care:-

Anthurium Clarinervium careTemperature plays a very crucial role in the growth and development of the plant. Every plant needs favorable environmental conditions for the proper growth of the plant.

The favorable temperature for the growth of plant Anthurium is 20ºC to 27ºC. The plant is very sensitive so the temperature should not exceed 27ºC If it is exceeded it will cause damage to the plant. We have to notice the color of leaves that will change from green to brown and in the critical case, in this condition plants can also die.

Because of the sensitivity of the plant, it can’t handle temperatures below 12ºC If it happens plant will start freezing many times. We can see the cracks on the leaves and stem because of the cold temperature of less than 12ºC.

  • Humidity plays a very influential role in the plant’s growth. Anthurium Clarinervium requires very high humidity for the proper vegetative growth of the plant.

Humidity should be at least 50% but the preferred humidity should be more than this; required humidity needs to be 80% or more than this for the proper growth of the plant.

For the high humidity requirements, we recommend using the humidifier with this. It will be easy to maintain the proper humidity in the environment. We can also use a hand water sprayer & fluently spray it four to five times a day to provide proper humidity. If we are keeping a plant in an open area like a balcony or outside, we have to take more care about humidity, which is very important to maintain.

  • Air Circulation:- The role of proper air circulation in Anthurium Clarinervium care is very important for the growth of the plant. It is very important to keep the plant in a well-ventilated room to ensure the proper growth of the plant. 🌱

Anthurium Clarinervium Care With Heat & Sunlight

As we have discussed many times previously, this outstanding attractive plant, Anthurium Clarinervium is very sensitive. It is also so sensitive to heat and light that it doesn’t require direct sunlight. If a direct fall on the plant, it will damage the delegated leaves of the plant, & if its continues, humidity percentage will get decreased in the environment and the plant can die as well.

As we know, Anthurium is an indoor plant. It doesn’t need too much direct sunlight or heat if Anthurium-Clarinervium-small-plantyou are keeping your favorite plant near your window or balcony. Make sure it is not getting damaged by any cause, like direct sunlight, heat, or less humidity.

Let me clarify it doesn’t require direct sunlight, but it requires indirect sunlight in the proper amount for the proper growth and development of the plant if you are leaving in an area where the weather changes constantly, like sometimes summer and sometimes winter then you have to take special care of the plant in both of the winter make ensure that plant gets proper indirect sunlight for growth and in summer make sure that plant is not getting affected by direct sunlight and heat.

Propagation method of Anthurium Clarinervium –

Propagation is a natural process from which we produce a new plant from the parent stock for this plant.

Plant propagation is very important in propagation and we can propagate this plant by two most common methods of propagation; both methods of propagation are rapid methods of propagation by which we get the same character plant as the mother plant.

There are two different ways to propagate this plant.

  • Root Division
  • Stem Cuttings

Root Division

Root division is the process in which we dig the plant out of the pot and divide the plant carefully below. We have added one image of how to do root cutting off the plant. For root division, you can also say root cutting method.

To grow new plants from root division, remove the plant from its container and carefully separate the roots into two or three sections. Plant each of the sections in a pot with appropriate potting soil.



We are adding one more image from this. You will easily understand how this root division process will work.




There are three types of cutting that are commonly used for propagation, but for this plant, we only use one that is herbaceous cutting.

In this process, we used to separate small plants that are growing from the main stem size of the plant should be at least 5cm to separate it from the mother plant.

The plant that is separated from the mother plant should have at least one root hair over one, which is excellent; it increases the chances of successful propagation.

We will suggest doing the process of propagation in the daytime. This is because daylight is appropriate, plants don’t get injured and the chances of any type of infection are also less in daylight.

After separating the plant from the mother plant, keep it in a separate pot. You can also say that nursery pot, soil in that pot should be moist and kept in shade, not in direct sunlight.

The cutting process should be done with clean and sensitized seasor, knives, or any cutting tool. This will decrease the chances of infection in the baby plant and mother plant.

Proper Fertilizer Dose for Anthurium Clarinervium Care –

Giving a proper amount of fertilizer is very important for the growth and development of plants because potted plants don’t get proper nutrition from the soil, so they need more nutrition as compared to plants that are planted outside of the pot.

During winter, we don’t need to do Anthurium Clarinervium Care for fertilizer. It does not require external fertilizer, but in the growing season between March and September, it requires fertilizer.

Micronutrient requirements are very high for the growth of Anthurium Clarinervium.

As compared to other plants, Anthuriums growth is so slow it takes too long to show symptoms of nutrient deficiency. After several months, you will get to know any symptoms of the plant.

”N” deficiency is the major problem in the plant of Anthuriums, where ”N” stands for nitrogen.

To fulfill the requirement of nitrogen, we will suggest applying organic fertilizer. This will not harm plants and the major benefit of organic fertilizer is that it releases nutrients. Slowly, that is good for the plant.

Below I am attaching some important images, you will understand what will happen with nitrogen deficiency.



Before starting, this blog let me clarify one thing everything that I'm going to write in this blog is about my growing experience with this wonderful plant and I will also add my knowledge about Anthurium Clarinervium care, believe me, you are going to get exceptional information about how to do Anthurium Clarinervium care. Anthurium Clarinervium



Figure 1st:- In this pic, you can see that because of nitrogen deficiency, lower leaves are becoming yellow, which is an 18-month-old plant.

Figure 2nd:- In this pic, you can see that the whole plant turns yellow and after this stage plant will die. This is a 6-month-old plant & you can see the impact is huge.

Figure 3rd:- In this pic, you can see the leaves of the plant start dropping. This is the third and last stage of the plant recovery from this phase is very difficult.

In Nitrogen deficiency, whole leaves turn yellow, but when there is a deficiency of Potassium edges of the leaves turn yellow below I will add one pic to understand this.

deficiency of Potassium in in Anthurium ClarinerviumIn this pic, you can see the edges of the older leaves are becoming yellow. This shows the deficiency of phosphorus in the plant.

One more problem with phosphorus deficiency is that older and younger leaves become darker than older leaves.

We don’t need to apply a full quantity of fertilizers at a time. At regular intervals, we will suggest applying a limited amount of fertilizer. We will also suggest applying liquid fertilizer during irrigation. Liquid fertilizer because it takes quick action in the plant and fulfills the requirement.

Anthurium Clarinervium Care For Proper Irrigation

We can define irrigation as providing water with an artificial medium in a controlled manner. Irrigation fulfills the water requirement of the plant and supports the plant for good vegetative growth.

As we know, Anthurium is an indoor plant, so it doesn’t need water every day. Before watering the plant, check the moisture content of the soil. If it is sufficient, don’t irritate it. If you find the soil is dry, and the moisture content is less, then irrigate it.

For checking the water requirement of the plant, you can practice this manual method by dipping your finger in the soil for 1-2 inches. If you find your finger dry, then irrigate it. If it is wet, then no need for irrigation. We can also use a small spoon to check the moisture of the soil.

We will not suggest over-watering in the first scenario. It will slow the growth of plants and in the worst scenario, the roots and hairs of the plant will get harmed and the plant can die.

The plant loves moisture, but it does not need regular watering. Over-watering will make the plant roots soggy and retard their growth. The plant loves to be well hydrated with the right amount of water.

On dry days,{ summer period } we can keep our plant in the bathroom for some time. It will get the required humidity from there in the dry season.

It does not need water every day. Water once the top 1-2 inches of soil is dry. The plant will need watering only when the top soil feels a little dry.


Pruning is a very important process. It helps plants for proper growth and development, and also helps to improve the appearance of the plant.

Anthurium Clarinervium doesn’t require too much pruning it can damage the plant we can say they required minimum pruning, we will suggest before doing pruning observe the plant and after observing select the leaves that are discolored, select the leaves with patches or any insect damage or the leaves which are turning yellow or brown, or any leave which is growing too long remove all of them.

Mainly we do pruning to keep plants healthy and make their appearance good.

Pruning is very important to keep plants healthy because there are many diseases and infections in plants that spread from one part of the plant to another part. They can transfer from one leaf to another leaf so it is better to cut that infected leaf and protect the plant from all these.


One question that comes to our mind is why repotting?

Re-potting is very important for the growth of indoor plants. After every two to three years, we should do the process of re-potting to maintain the proper growth of the plant, as we know roots of Indoor plants are so much hairy and in years it becomes so compact, soil in the pot become nutrient less so we need to transfer them in a big pot with new soil.

Re-potting of the plant depends on many factors, like the size of the plant, size of the pot, weather condition, re-potting time & soil mixture.

We will suggest keeping the size of the pot bigger than the previous pot. It will provide extra space for the roots to grow, and we can also add an extra pot mixture in that pot to get more nutrients for the growth and development of the plant.

The size of the plants matters a lot. If the size of the plant is extra big, then do the required pruning before the re-potting; it will make it easy to re-pot the plant.

During the process of re-potting, sometimes, we also need to trim the roots’ hair. Do this carefully. We need to identify the major roots and protect them from damage. Start trimming it from the downside and cut only the roots’ hair.

We should also notice whether before doing the process of re-potting if it is so dry season avoid it, always try to do re-potting in cold or rainy weather. In cold weather, growth will be slow and we can protect plants from direct sunlight. It will increase the survival rate of the plant during repotting.

Re-potting time is the most important factor and we suggest doing repotting in morning time before bright sunlight or evening time is very prefect timing for doing re-potting. We should avoid direct sunlight.

Soil mixture is most important for the growth of the plant it will provide the nutrients to the plant for a long time, we will suggest adding organic nutrients in the soil at the ratio of  1:1 in which half will be the soil & another half will be organic fertilizer, we are suggesting only organic fertilizer because it will release nutrient slowly and fulfill the micro-nutrient & macro-nutrient requirement of the plant, it will also make soil lose that will promote root growth of the plant, one more important benefit of mixing the organic fertilizer at the ratio of 1:1 it will decrease the capacity of soil to hold the water drainage of water will be easy but if the soil will hold water for a long time it will damage roots of Anthurium Clarinervium as we have discussed in irrigation section.


Toxicity in Anthurium Clarinervium –

It is very important to inform you that the plant Anthurium Clarinervium is a toxic plant & we know the toxin it has as calcium oxalate crystals; it is not so much poisonous that it directly kills humans or pets; it will cause health issues if ingested.

The chemical calcium oxalate crystals are not only found in this plant; we also find it in many eatables like spinach and other leafy green vegetables, rhubarb, and wheat bran, but the quantity differs, some have more, and some have less.

Precautions that we should take, keep out of the reach of the pets and also from the children who don’t understand things.

Note:- Plant is not our enemy; they are our best friend, or we can say it, family members, because we care for the plant-like our babies.

At Last Conclusion 

At last, I will conclude everything in very short,

Anthurium Clarinervium Care is not too difficult, just need to understand the plant. Understanding the plant means knowing the proper habitat of the plant, climatic requirements of the plant, soil requirements for proper growth, proper fertilizer applications, and water requirements of the plant.
