Anthurium pallidiflorum

No pictures can do the gorgeous, long, glistening foliage of these plants any justice. Anthurium pallidiflorum Engl is a pendent epiphyte with terete petioles and dark green, velvety leaf blades which can become very long. It belongs to section Leptanthurium.


The genus name Anthurium is derived from Greek ánthos "flower" + ourá "tail" + New Latin -ium -ium . A very  literal translation of this would be 'flowering tail'.
