Variegated anthurium

Recommended Posts

I bought this plant from Asiatica.

Its supposedly called Anthurium "Golden Glitter" but I believe that they make up a lot of plant names off the top of their heads (I may be wrong, but it seems that way)

When I got it, it was indeed variegated, but very very subtly so. Green with a gold variegation.

Since its been under my care, planted in the ground in the greenhouse, it has put out 3 new leaves that are largely white with some green areas. The green darkens greatly with time.

I have fertilized it with Peter's Excel 15-5-15 Cal/Mag fertilizer, and also with Nutricote, and with Jerry's Grow Orchid fertilizer. Just whatever happens to splash on it, LOL.

I posted a photo of it on another forum, after it had put out only one whitish leaf, and was told, "That plant has a really bad virus and it won't survive".

But it has, and it seems to be doing well.

Do you think the "new" variegation has to do with nutrients in the fertilizer? I don't think its gonna croak.
