Christel from Köln, Germany

Good evening, Tamara,
The name of this plant is Anthurium. But it is also known under the name Flamingo Flower. It takes a lot of light but no direct sun. The temperature must not drop below 15 ° C. The irrigation water should not be chalky. It should therefore be softened or should you take to pour rain. I have this plant too. That it blooms all year round.
Your recording is brilliant. It pleases me very well how to represent the drops of water on the beautiful red flower. Dear greetings Christel

@Christel: Thank you so much for your explanation about this beautiful flower, I always enjoy to learn :) Actually I took this photo in the zoo of Antwerp where it was kept in what they call "The rain forest" area... which confirms what you said about temperature etc... Thanks again and have a nice evening :)
