Anthurium superbum is also known as a Bird Nest Anthurium due to how it grows in a rosette formation. They can be grown as an epiphyte as long as the roots don't completely dry out. They can be grown in shade but they're best with some dappled light. They enjoy being misted regularly. Being an aroid, their flowers are lily-like and will appear once the plant is a little more mature and happy.
