  Anthurium pollination
From: "Peter Wunderlin" pmdes at iafrica.com> on 1999.09.15 at 07:05:09(3653)
Hi everybody,
Since I started to collect Anthuriums on a more serious note I have quite a
few plants here that flower but never set seeds. How do I pollinate them?
I am totaly new to this but I am very interested to learn.
Best Regards
Peter

As for pollination of my Anthuriums, I use the original method. I wait till 4-5
days have passed for the new bloom, watch all the flies and other nasty insects
attack the plant, then some weeks later I have nice plump seeds. Last year, I
placed the ripening seed stalk into a loosely fitted plastic baggie only to
have a raccoon tear it apart. The resulting mess fell into the pot and several
seeds germinated and I now have several small starters.

Beginners luck.
