Linda Lauletta has loaned her anthurium plant to the Clermont City Hall for the month of October. Staff member, Ray Sanfratello, seen in picture accepting plant to display at front entrance of city hall.

Anthurium is a genus of about 1,000 species of flowering plants, the largest genus of the arum family, Araceae. General common names include anthurium, tailflower, flamingo flower, and laceleaf.

The plant grows best in bright, indirect light; prefers coarse well-draining soil; soil kept slightly moist, never allowed to dry out completely; and prefers high humidity with temperatures between 65-85 degrees. To encourage flowering use a phosphorus-rich fertilizer diluted ¼ strength and feed plant weekly during growing season.
