White Lady is an excellent plant to grow at home, because it makes a great potted plant. It is a very compact plant so it is capable of growing in a small pot in a small amount of space. It is also a very hardy plant and in fact it also demonstrates resistance to the bacterial blight. If treated well, it will produce six elongated tulip shaped flowers a year. These lovely flowers will acquire a slight hint of pink as the flowers mature. If you put these flowers into a vase, they will last up to 25 days.
Other white and off-white varieties include: Pua Kea, Ellison, Sister Grace and Limelight. Most of these types of flowers fall into the standard anthurium family as opposed to the tulip anthurium family like White Lady. Standard anthuriums are medium sized flowers that are heart shaped, while tulip anthuriums are smaller and of course tulip shaped. Tulip anthuriums are usually hybrids of the anthurium amnicola species, while standard anthuriums are generally hybrids of the anthurium andraeanum species.
White anthurium care is very straightforward. Put them near a sunny window, but do not allow them to receive full-strength sunlight or they will get sun burned. Make sure that they are kept at a temperature of 70 to 80 degrees. Water them regularly, but make sure that their soil is always well drained. Apply a small amount of slow release fertilizer once or twice a year. And that is pretty much all there is to it.
White anthurium flowers can be arranged in a number of ways. A simple arrangement could consist of 6 to 12 flowers all by themselves. More complex arrangements could consist of pinks and whites; or whites, pinks and reds. You could also mix them with other flowers. They go really well with orchids and green tropical foliage. If you really want to push the envelope, you could arrangement them with red anthuriums, lilies and roses, as well.
