Plant Journal – Anthurium Magnificum

Summary Anthuriums seem to be everywhere right now. At least in my plant feed. I resisted for so long but then this year I got my first Anthurium and it was an Anthurium Magnificum Silver.

Plant Journal – Variegated Monstera Borsigiana

Plant Journal – Syngonium Neon Robusta

Summary My Syngonium Neon Robusta was a present from Elena.
