Linda is sharing Anthurium spp., Flamingo Flower for the month of September. The plant is an herbaceous perennial, 12-18 inches tall with a 9–12-inch spread. The plant likes bright indirect light sitting in coarse, moist potting mix. Flowers year round, usually 3-month intervals and comes in colors of red, pink, or white with a contrasting spadix. 

An anthurium can be grown in a glass of water. Keep the glass two-thirds full of water and add a drop or two of liquid houseplant fertilizer to the water every 10 to 14 days. Fill the bottom 3 inches of the glass with small pebbles to anchor roots.
