Anthurium lineolatum is a species in the Araceae family. It belongs to the Anthurium section Polyneurium. It is native to Ecuador, where it grows terrestrial in the wet tropical forest.

There is very little known about this anthurium species.

The leaves of Anthurium lineolatum are light green and paper-thin, almost see-through. This stunning species has long petioles and oblong-shaped leaves.

The leaves are matte, not glossy, except for the newly emerging ones. The inflorescence is intense purple.

Anthurium Lineolatum Care

Anthurium lineolatum is a relatively easy anthurium to care for, in my experience. Provide it with bright indirect light, chunky, well-draining potting mix, warm temperature, keep the roots moist, and it will thrive. I haven’t seen it attract any pests.

It is quite a fast grower, unlike an Anthurium recavum.

It is an underrated species, but it is stunning!
