Hiyer, Jason!

That was a fun meeting in Texas! I do not have any experience with A. llewwlynii, but I have frown plenty of A. scandens. A. scandens is not so much a creeper as a climber. When I have seen it in the wild it typically grown in loose, well drained soil with lots of leaf litter and climbs trees and rocks. In my greenhouses, I grew it in pots with a mix of sand, pumice, peat and compost, and let it limb the walls and posts. You can cut off a branch and stick in the soil and it will root readily and grow just fine.

Bird nest Anthuriums do not typically grow up totems, but form large rosettes.

Happy days,
