A firm favourite amongst plant addicts, the Anthurium Clarinervium has very distinctive heart shape leaves with an incredible suede-like texture and striking silver veining. They'll be happiest in bright indirect light and should be watered when the top inch of soil has dried out. Perhaps a little more finnicky that some other plants, but completely worth it!
