8. Anthurium Wendlingeri

With long and narrow leaves, falling down from its pot, the Anthurium Wendlingeri already knows how to radiate this whimsical feeling. But when you know that it can produce flowers that also hang the same way, it’s just that little bit of extra spark that we love this Anthurium species for. Oh, and the allure doesn’t stop there! These flowers can be spiral-shaped, making them look unusual and really captivating. Sounds like a cool addition to your plant collection, doesn’t it?
