Lurker I am. I am new to th is format , but noit to many wriyers, who
enjoyed the dialogue to become acquainted. So here goes I am an on, off, on
again grower of too many years. I live in SW. Fl who after the vacation
found remnants of the former collection doing very well. Those are the ones
to grow. Hoever I am well onto another collection. A poser: A number of
years ago Monroe Birdsey shared an anthurium with Jack Johnson. For years he
never flowered it and before his demise gave it to JAck Williford. It
produced seed for Jack who sent them to me. After a 95% germination I have
seedlings that I have never seen before. The plant is pachyneurum like, has
narrow aacumoinate leaves, short petiole :D: shaped. Mid vein raised nearly
to the tip. Broader near the top. Persistant cataphylls. Leaf color
reminescent of A. superb um or A. wilifordii . Mildly bullate- at this
time- Whilee I know this matches others I believe there are key clues for
those who might be more intimate with Birdsys collection than I. We are
about to recover from a serious drought that destroyed or set back acres of
citrus and the loss of precious plants. Hiope to be more resposive in the
future. Nice hearing ffrom old friends

Thanks Denis for the info. I have since learned the mature plant grows no
more than 40" that rules out your suggestion. Another possible key is it's
scales that provide a glistening sheen on the leaf surface. It is more
cardiolonchium like. I suppose eventually it's ID will be known. Joe
