For about three years now I've have this gorgeous valentine heart-shaped leaf and bloom as a houseplant. The ladies in particular love it. Just about anyone who sees it notices the heart-shaped leaves and blooms and comments. "God is love" is a Scripture that I like to think it represents quite well in these valentine shapes of leaf and bloom. Some anthuriums haved lance-shaped leaves, but this one is heart- shaped.

I have a Flamingo - Salmon Anthurium in which I had bought from Wal - Mart. ( I know it is not the best place, but they do not know about plants and therefore price them soo cheap).
I put my main plant near a window with decent amount of sun, though not direct. It is doing very well; it has three blooms and another one still opening up. I took of a rhizome with two large leaves and a small growth with only one root, placed it in a little bio degrade. container of soil, and so far it has been doing well. Once this develops roots, I will attempt to grow it on a lava rock. Here are some pictures of the plant and the separated rhizome.
