(Anthurium, Baker's Anthurium)
Unusual among other Anthurium species, Baker's anthurium is a tree-dwelling epiphyte found in the tropical, wet, premontane forests from Guatemala to Colombia. It has long, lance-shaped leaves of green with brownish undersides. Its flowers have a creamy white, nearly cylindrical spadix. A long column of red berries is produced following insect pollination. These fruits are very showy and interesting.
The long, linear leaves of this anthurium are evergreen and produced in a tidy clump....
This evergreen herbaceous perennial is native to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The large, oblong, glossy, wavy-edged leaves grow in a vase-shaped clump. Narrow maroon spathes and long, fragrant, purplish green spadices appear sporadically throughout the year in warm, humid conditions.
Anthurium crenatum needs warmth, humidity, and partial shade, and thrives in a porous soil rich in leaf mold. Grow it as an indoor container plant, or outdoors in tropical climates.

Native from Panama to Peru, this evergreen herbaceous perennial is grown primarily for its large rounded glossy dark green leaves with indented silver-white veins. The purplish green spathes and spadices are ornamentally insignificant.
Anthurium crystallinum prefers humidity, partial shade, and fertile, moist, well drained soil. Use as a house plant, or as a container or garden plant in tropical areas.
