Anthurium dressleri is a rare houseplant that has recently had plant collectors in awe. But growing it can be a real challenge.
If you’ve recently added Anthurium dressleri to your collection, learning how to care for it and keep it thriving is essential. Anthurium dressleri is an exotic terrestrial plant belonging to the Aroid family.
The easiest way to identify Anthurium dressleri is by using its foliage. The leaves are heart-shaped, with well-defined, sometimes overlapping lobes.
Anthurium dressleri takes its name from two well-known botanists. First, it was named “dressleri” in honor of American botanist Robert Louis Dressler.
The “Croat” suffix is used in botanic nomenclature to refer to Thomas Croat, an American botanist and aroid expert who has, so far, collected over 85,000 species.
Anthurium dressleri has moderate light requirements. In its natural habitat, this terrestrial species grows on the jungle forest floor.
Always keep the soil of your Anthurium dressleri moist but not soaked. The only way to achieve this delicate balance is if you’re using the right soil mix.
