Cultivar Origin:

Name Origin:

The name refers to the habit of the plant to produce masses of leaves that have a cascading effect. The colour of the leaves is a deep emerald shade.

Growth Habit:

Tendancy to clump and readily produces pups. The plant produces a multitude of leaves which give it a pleasing cascade effect.

Leaf Blade:

Leaves rarely longer than 30cm or wider than 15cm. Tends to produce multiples of leaves over larger leaves. New leaves appear greenish yellow, darkening to an emerald green and eventually a dark blue green. Multiple leaf shades combined with the cascading effect and bountiful leaf production. D shaped petiole.

Bloom and Fruit:

Flowers produced on stems approx 40cm in length with a D shaped petiole. Spath and spadix are insignificant and olive green in colour. When pollinated successfully the flower produces purple berries that contain 1 - 2 seeds. Particularly favourable to Anthurium waroqueanum pollen.
