cross breading ????
From: Pugturd at aol.com on 2000.02.06 at 17:36:17(4059)|
Hello this is Brian Williams. I have a few questions about a subject I have
no clue on. Well, I have a few Anthuriums blooming. Now one is a birdsnest
type and the other one is a more common heart shaped form. Is it possible to
cross bread these? If so what does it look like? If not why? I would also
like to know if Urospatha and Cyrtosperma could be crossed? I heard they are
very closely related. Could it be possible? If their is some law or way to
know what can be crossed bread I would like to know. I cannot find any
information on it anywhere, and if I do it is a little over my head. THANKS

A good place to start would be online at the IAS website. If you go to
genera and then anthurium you will come to the intro page for anthurium.
Read the article on the sections of anthurium. In that article the sections
of anthurium are described and then the article offers information on trial
crosses between different sections of anthurium.
The birdsnest type you have is likely in Section pachyneurium and the heart
shaped leaf could be in any number of sections including, Calomystrium,
Belolonchium and Cardiolonchium.
That should get you started.
Also, there is a brief article on how to pollinate anthuriums at my site....
Don't know about Cyrtosperma and Urospatha.......Julius??

I have 'done' a Urospatha from the Orinoco Delta by a Urospatha grandis from
Costa Rica BOTH WAYS, but don`t THINK a Urospatha X Crytosperma would
'take', too distantly related, I THINK!!
Alsitar Hay did C. cuspidispathum X C. becarianum some years ago, wonderful
offspring, beautiful plants. Lots of hybrids in Anthurium, have seen some
strange ones, including birdsnest form crossed to a cordate form (I am not
'big' into this genus, but believe both belonged to the section
Good luck Brian!!|

Can someone explain what is the difference between a section and a subgenus?
