Waves of Love is one type of Anthurium plant. Anthurium is a beautiful leafy plant native to Indonesia, while commonly used for cut flowers originated from Europe.
In our country, there are at least 7 types of anthurium, Anthurium hybridum (elephant tongue), Anthurium cyrstalinum (elephant ear), Anthurium scherzerianum, Anthurium andreanum, Anthurium rafidooa, Anthurium pedatoradiatum (wali songo), and Anthurium macrolobum.

How to Plant Waves of Love
Propagation of ornamental plants waves of love. can be done by seed and split (separation). About the way and techniques have been written in mass media and articles on the Internet. Here I am just writing about what should be considered when the split process Anthurium.
How to split can be done at the time still saplings, which separates by leaving a little tuber bonggol for the growth of roots and buds.
The easiest way is done on Anthurium that grows more than one clump. In plants that have grown, split technique is done by cutting the bonggol into several parts as long as there are still buds in the stump and a little root will cause new sapling buds.
The advantages of this method is a faster growth grows bigger than the wave of love plants derived from seeds.
And the disadvantage of split technique is Anthurium figure hard to grow rosette and compact, both canopy and leaf large and long leaves look less proportional.
However, this can be anticipated with good care and even sunlight exposure to form a good leaf canopy.
Will the broodstock productivity that comes from the split will be less than the sizes of the beans? In my experience the breeds of the split will be reduced but not too much difference with the sires of the seeds. In plant science it does so.
Note, however, that the number of seeds of cobs is also influenced by the pollination process and adequate nutritional requirements.
Each species in the ornamental plants of Love Waves also vary great cob and productivity of the seeds produced. For example, Tongkol Wave of Love can produce thousands of seeds which of course different from the type of Hybrid like Black Beauty which can only produce hundreds of seeds in each cob.
Split Waves of Love Breeding Culture Process
In order for the split process to succeed as desired, some things that must be considered diataranya namely:
- Plants to be discharged (separation and cut bonggol) should be in good health free from pest and disease diseases less nutritious. When attacked by fungus it must be treated first until completely recovered.
- Place a new plant or tub that is newly displaced in a shade free from sunlight until bud growth is seen.
- Use a sharp and sterile knife to avoid decay on cutting scars.
- Moisture of plant media need to be kept not too wet, can use sand as mixture
- Give Fungicide / Anti-fungus on cut wounds.
- In the humps that arise some shoots do not rush to separate them. Wait until it appears 2-3 leaves.
- If some new buds do not grow in balance (one has grown large while the other has stopped growth) separate by leaving more roots for the slow-growing shoots.
- Provide nutrition stimulant growth of roots and shoots with the correct dose.

At least 3 days for one full day. Because plants that are too long in the room, tend to make the leaves pale. When the room is air-conditioned, the leaves become dry and the color becomes dull green.
When placed on an open page, should use a net shading that has a thickness of 60%, which allows only 40% of the light enter. Do not be too dark, or shady. This can make the physical growth of the plant disturbed.

• When plants have reached the generative phase, fertilizers with high P (Phospor) and K (Kalium) contents may be used to stimulate flowering.
In addition to basic fertilizer NPK, should also be given manure or humus at least once a year. The manure used should be sterile.
