īThank you for all answers I received. Iīm really surprised about that.
It is a rhizomatous plant, epihytic (it grows best in hydroculture). The
flower of this plant is typical for the genus Anthurium. The spathe is
green, the peduncles are much longer than the petioles. (The petioles only
3-4 cm). The plant smells so ugly that my wife always told me to cut
them.:-). And it makes self berries without pollinate by an other flower
like for example. A. scandens. The leaves are wavy like the A. plowmannii
but not so broad.
Another curious and remarkable thing is that this anthurium is a magnet for
plant-louse. Only this plant is attacked by them no other Aroid at home.
Every summer I must fight against them.
I have no pictures but will make some and send it. I never made some,
because in germany is the interest on aroids really small. There some peopl=
interessted in cryptocoryne and great Mr. Bogner as a scientist.
So i never make photos of my own plants-I see them every day and I never
known anybody who was interessted in looking "stupid Aroids". .
I think when the pictures arrived sombody knows this plant, but itīs
definetly not A. paraguayense and A. plowmanni.
