  Anthurium araliaefolium
From: MOTO_DO at t-online.de (Thomas Mottl) on 1998.10.13 at 18:49:40(2691)
Dear Aroiders,

I have an A. araliaefolium, now I read that this species comes from New
Caledonia, this wonders me, because this Island is so near by Australia.
I always thought Anthuriums are only growing in Central and South America?
Can anybody tell me if this is true that this species is native at New

Dear Thomas,

Madison, in his revision of the species of Anthurium with palmately
divided leaves (Selbyana) wrote that Anth. araliifolium was described
after a single cultivated specimen said to have come from New Caledonia,
however Engler considered that it was probably from Central America.
Madison thinks that it might be a hybrid between Anth. podophyllum and a
species with cordate leaves ...

Concerning Anth. wendlingeri, I used to grow mine when it was young in
pure sphagnum moss until the blades reached about 30 cm, then in a mix
of pine bark, polystyrene, shoped sphagnum and perlite. The leaves are
now more than 1 m long. It grew very fast when it was young but now that
it is adult, it is producing new leaves much less often.

Best regards

David Scherberich
