The Anthurium 'Midori' is a great 'no fuss' indoor plant. While it prefers light, it does not like too much sun.
It just needs to be kept watered, but not over watered.
It also thrives better in loose humus-rich soil.
There are hundreds of species of Anthurium which have been in cultivation since the mid 1900's, and over the years many cultivars have been developed. They can be recognised by their striking looking almost round spathe, and their slender, often curved spadix.
