Riddle:  What is the plant's name with the heart-shaped pink 'flower' that can easily live indoors!

Answer:  Anthurium!

Today in #gettoknowyourplant, we get to know the lovely anthurium!

These plants thrive in bright indirect light and are considered easy to manage. If you are looking for an indoor plant to add a pop of color to your office environment, look no further. The anthurium's flower lasts two to three months, and the plant blooms throughout the year.

By mimicking their Malaysian rain forest habitat, your anthurium could produce up to 6 blooms a year! I.e., give your plant lots of indirect sunlight, proper watering, high humidity, and weekly feeding with diluted phosphorus-rich fertilizer.
