I've had a couple of A. Clarinervium for a year. When I first got them (bareroot), I wasn't sure how to pot them because of their long, thick roots. The roots are much longer than the plants are tall. It's the same way with the seedlings (a very generous soul gave me both the plants and the seeds). What I'd normally do in that situation with a plant is trim the roots to encourage them to branch out more. However, since I'm unfamiliar with anthuriums, I'm hesitant to do that.

If I pot them according to root length, I feel like the plants are in too large of pots for their size. Please advise... thanks,

Deanna
