Description | Anthurium Superbum


The Anthurium Superbum, commonly known as the Bird's Nest Anthurium, is an exceptional tropical plant that boasts a distinctive appearance. Originating from the rainforests of Ecuador, this plant forms a tight rosette of dark green, leathery leaves with a puckered surface, giving it a remarkable texture. It's an ideal choice for those looking to add a touch of the tropics and an element of architectural interest to their indoor spaces.


Characterized by its large, elliptical, dark green leaves, Anthurium Superbum stands out with its pronounced ribbed texture and glossy finish. The leaves can grow up to 2 feet long, emerging in a rosette pattern that resembles a bird's nest, providing a dramatic visual impact. While it blooms less frequently indoors, its inflorescences are subtle, adding a delicate contrast to its bold foliage.

Unique Attributes

Anthurium Superbum is particularly noted for its air-purifying qualities, as it's capable of removing toxins from the environment. Its robust form and ease of care make it a popular choice for indoor gardeners. Unlike its more colorful relatives, this plant is celebrated for its foliage rather than its flowers, making it a unique specimen in the Anthurium genus.

History and Origin

Native to the dense rainforests of Ecuador, Anthurium Superbum is accustomed to warm, humid environments and filtered light. It's a relatively recent addition to the indoor plant world, gaining popularity for its ornamental leaves and ease of care. This plant's resilience and striking appearance have quickly made it a favorite among enthusiasts.

Care Instructions

Light Requirements

Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Direct sunlight should be avoided to prevent leaf burn.


Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure good drainage to prevent root rot. Mist regularly to replicate its humid natural habitat.

Soil and Fertilization

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix. Fertilize every other month with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer to support its lush foliage.

Temperature and Humidity

Thrives in temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C) and high humidity. Consider using a humidifier or placing the pot on a pebble tray with water to increase humidity.

Pruning and Maintenance

Minimal pruning is needed. Remove any yellowed or damaged leaves to maintain its aesthetic appeal. Dust the leaves occasionally to keep them healthy and shiny.


Propagate by dividing the main plant during repotting. Ensure each division has at least one growth point for successful growth.

Companion Plants

Choosing the right companion plants can make your space a lush, healthy haven, enhancing the beauty and vitality of your garden. Opt for plants with similar light and humidity preferences to ensure they grow harmoniously together. This thoughtful selection not only enriches the visual appeal of your space but also contributes to a balanced and supportive environment where each plant can thrive.
