The anthurium is a cheeky charming plant with very shining red leaves and can in a small way also remove chemical vapours inside homes, shops, malls, schools etc. They also have beautiful spathes standing out against their dark green foliage! The spathes come in glorious colours of cream, pink, orange, coral etc.
These plants from the tropics need a warm and humid condition but are worth trying out as they brighten up any part of the house!
Their overall rating by Dr. B.C. Wolverton in his book How to Grow Fresh Air is 5.3 out of ten with 3 for removing chemical vapors, 5 for ease of growth and maintenance, 6 for resistance to insect attacks and 7 for transpiration rate. But they definitely give a very bright cheerful green varnish to any home!
