It amazes me how starkly different these flowers become as they age.
The ‘Old’ and the ‘New’.
This is a Green Anthurium, sometimes know as a Midori Anthurium – the first (and still the only) variety that’s truly, and completely, green.
But when the flowers are left on the plant, as they begin to die, the brats pass through a stunning array of colours, from pink to copper, that highlight the intricacy of Nature’s incredible design.
You can see there is a vast difference between the dying brats and those that have just opened.

It’s interesting that this plant has 12 flowers at the moment – one for every Anthurium I own.
And that it is the only one with a resident Praying Mantis.
