I got my A. rotschildianum from Logees and so it looks like the one you
described in the Logees catalog. It has done quite well as a house plant.
I grow it in potting soil approximately 10 inches under fluorescent bulbs
(4x30 watts). It grows quite well and is probably ready for transplanting
into a larger pot (now 8").

Could your browning of leaves be fungus related? The only times my leaves
turn brown are when they grow so large that they're directly touching the
fluorescent bulb.

Dear Anthurium growers: Anthurium scherzerianum occurs at high
elevation in cloud forests as a true epiphyte. It prefers a loose soil
mix, the highest humidity possible and cool temperatures. Thus is is
not surprizing that it does not do well under average house conditions.
I wonder if it would do well in a terrarium? It also gets a lot of air
movement in the wild so that might not bode well for terrarium
conditions.
