A rare appearance

Due to change in exposure to the sun etc, this flower had stopped blooming in my garden. When a tree or two got out of the way I see buds on this plant. Anthuriums need a particular amount of sun not too much nor too little. It is a trial and error method that has given me success. I have had three other colours. I shall get them back soon as I see the setting is good for them now. The unpredictability of weather makes it difficult for us to know what will thrive and what will not. Just planting and waiting for results is what I do these days. As I have said earlier in one of my posts, I have sown some seasonal flowering seeds and keeping my fingers crossed for them to be successful till end of time.

I think you have a green thumb because you have plenty of flowers there and I love anthuriums too.

@allknowing I see and I can see it in your previous post that you love gardening. Yes, gardening is such a good hobby and a good leisure especially when you see the flowers already blooming.

Those are a tropical plant to me and we often see them in the middle of a bouquet- and I've seen them in a brighter red. Beautiful plant.

Such a beautiful flower. In our courtyard they grow wild in the water pots.

@allknowing Yes, if I remember, I will take a picture of one tomorrow. I am always amazed at the flowers that grow here. We even have orchids that seem to stick to a tree (non related) and will blossom!

Thank you so much for this post. I've been trying to remember the name of that flower for a very long time.
