The Giant Leaves of Anthurium rugulosum These plants have truly gigantic leaves (the original image had me standing next to it and it is as big as I am). The small opening at the top of the leaf is a perfect fit for a face and the internet is full of photos of people with their faces in there.

  1. That does look enormous! It also seem to have interesting edges. Posted one year ago
  2. Goodness, what a breathtaking size you describe. I see the genus 'Anthurium' and simply think immediately of the well-known houseplants (or here in Australia outdoors where there's no frost). This leaf looks like it is made of leather, incredible. Posted 2 months ago
