Anthurium, with over 108 described genera and 3750 species, is one of the most popular tropicals, highly appreciated for its brightly coloured and long lasting flowers. The exotic Anthurium industry plays a significant role in the global floriculture trade. To overcome the demerits of conventional propagation of Anthurium, plant tissue culture proved to be an influential tool that can complement conventional breeding and accelerate Anthurium development. This review presents a consolidated explanation of in vitro propagation and focuses upon contemporary information on biotechnological advances made in Anthurium.
