  Re: [Aroid-l] Does anyone grow the real Anthurium hookeri?

I have several here in Hawai’i, that fit all the descriptions (including the glandular punctuates), and some are setting seed right now.  Surprisingly, I picked them up at the island Lowe’s Hardware in Kona, fairly large ones (leaves 2’ long) for less than $15 apiece.  The local grower is Novelty Greens, in Hilo.

          I believe the true A. hookeri occurs on Trinidad. This is according to what the late Dr. Richard Howard told me when we were collecting in Grenada together. He published the Flora of the Lesser Antilles. The species we have in Grenada, 90 miles to the north, is A. wildenovii I believe, and I have never seen A. hookeri growing here.


          It should not be difficult to obtain seeds and seedlings of A. hookeri in Trinidad but the airline charges a ridiculous amount to get there from Grenada.
