The official name of this plant is Anthurium. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

Anthurium (电离红掌; pinyin: diànlí hóng zhǎng) is the third plant obtained in Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. They fire electrical balls at zombies. They also absorb the lightning that strikes during gameplay of Sky City, removing the positive or negative charge from plants in 3x3 area and unleashing a powerful attack using that lightning. They are an environment modifier.

Almanac entry

电离红掌 (Anthurium)
Sun cost: 150

DAMAGE: Moderate
RANGE: Straight
RECHARGE: Mediocre



    In English:

    Anthurium absorbs thunderbolts and attacks in front of zombies.

    Special: It absorbs lightning effect around the body.

    Plant feature: red plant, 100,000 volts, twin brothers

    Don't be surprised by Anthurium's positive and negative electrical knowledge, just look at the two brothers' excellent physics exam scores and you will understand. Yet, they could never understand each other, such as choosing which tie to wear; whether to watch a documentary or a drama; or to go to an Indian restaurant or a Chinese restaurant for a date. At least, they know that without each other, neither of them could wield their electrical charges.


Plant Food effect

When fed with Plant Food, Anthurium removes charge from all plants who have it and attacks three zombies in front of them with lightning bolts.


They summon one lightning bolt in front of them and two lightning bolts on the tiles adjacent to that lightning bolt.

This plant is recommended in Sky City because they can remove the electric charges of the plants. However, never rely on their attack because it is very very weak. Their upgrades are also optional, because the main use of Anthurium is to remove the electric charges. It is also not recommended to use them outside of Sky City.




  • Their design is similar to that of Ganoderma, with two heads that have the same expressions.
    • Their idle animation is also similar to that of Ganoderma's idle animation.
    • Another similarity between the two is that the back head does not seem to attack.
  • They are the only plant obtained in Sky City without a flying ability.
  • They are the first plant to have different costumes depending on the version.
    • In the iOS version, they have Wall-nut's Christmas costume.
    • In the Android version, they wear binoculars. However, they still have the iOS costume Puzzle Piece.
    • This also makes them the second Chinese-exclusive plant to have multiple costumes, the first being Vigorous Broccoli.
  • If the level is over and there is a tombstone in their lane, they will continue to attack the tombstone.
