There are several species of Anthurium with velvety deep green leaves and silver veins which have been for years among the most prized subjects of aroid collections. Recently large numbers of these plants have become available in the nursery trade, with wholesalers supplying plants either by massive collections from the wild or by growing plants from seed, much of the latter taking place in Costa Rica. Most of the plants in the trade are distributed as Anthurium clarinervium or A. crystallinum, but there seems to be no general agreement as to which is which. The following notes should help to clarify the situation.
