Anthuriums have been cultivated for many decades for cut flower production. Since the mid 1980's, Anthurium's popularity as a flowering pot plant has increased dramatically and has become a popular addition to many foliage growers' product lines. Anthuriums are relatively easy to grow, have attractive foliage and under the proper environment, produce long lasting flowers year round. Currently, numerous cultivars with different flower sizes, shapes, colors and some with delicate fragrances are available for the consumer. Commercially, Anthuriums are grown throughout the world with the heaviest concentrations in the United States (Florida), the Netherlands and asia.
