Anthurium draconopterum is a species of Anthurium, a genus of flowering plants in the Araceae family. Please note that specific information about certain species or cultivars, especially rare ones, can be limited, and developments may have occurred since my last update.

Here are some general characteristics based on the information available up to my last update:

  1. Appearance:

    • Anthurium draconopterum is known for its unique and ornamental foliage. The leaves are usually lance-shaped with a distinctive dragon-like or serpent-like tail, giving the plant its name.
    • The leaves can vary in color, often displaying shades of green with interesting patterns and textures.
  2. Size:

    • The overall size of the plant can vary, but like many Anthurium species, it tends to be a moderately sized plant suitable for indoor cultivation.
  3. Light Requirements:

    • Provide bright, indirect light for Anthurium draconopterum. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.
  4. Temperature:

    • Anthuriums generally thrive in warm and humid conditions. Maintain temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C).
  5. Watering:

    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering again.
  6. Humidity:

    • Anthuriums appreciate higher humidity levels. Regular misting or placing the plant in a humid environment can be beneficial, especially in drier climates.
  7. Soil:

    • Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. A mix designed for aroids or orchids can be suitable.
  8. Fertilization:

    • Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or eliminate fertilization in the dormant winter months.
  9. Potting:

    • Repot Anthurium draconopterum as needed, typically every 1-2 years, or when it outgrows its current pot. Ensure the new pot has good drainage.
  10. Propagation:

    • Anthuriums can be propagated through division or stem cuttings. Cuttings should be taken from healthy, mature stems and rooted in a well-draining medium.
  11. Pests:

    • Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Regularly inspect the plant and take appropriate measures if an infestation occurs.
