Better known as the Variegated Birds Nest Anthurium, these slightly rare houseplants are a true head-turner for collections full of solid green leaves. Adorned with a crown of elongated foliage dappled with lighter green and cream variegation, the contrast will cause pause and reflection. This coloration becomes deeper and more interesting as the plant matures, and eventually makes an almost marbled appearance!
