Cold tolerance is a hot topic

Anthuriums originate in the tropics and prefer temperatures of at least 15 degrees Celsius. Fortunately, there are also Anthuriums that are not scared of a little bit of cold.

For years Anthura’s breeding has focused, amongst other things, on technical plant properties, including the plant’s cold tolerance. The level of cold resistance is thoroughly tested. If a plant does not meet the strict selection standards and fails to pass the test, it will not be added to our assortment.

The cold tolerance of a variety varies and can indeed affect your assortment choice. In the winter season in particular, information about cold resistance is essential, so we are happy to provide you with this information.
