Anthurium punctatum N. E. Brown, Gard. Chron. 26:809 (1886). Anthurium puncta tum is native to western Ecuador where it occurs as a pendent epiphyte in tropical wet forest. Like other pendent anthuriums with strap shaped leaves it makes a fine hanging basket plant in cultivation, especially if several shoots are established in a single basket. The plants should be planted in an open, well-drained soil and grown in moderate light.
