A friend sent me the following photo of an infructesence from a
recently purchased plant.

http://www.execpc.com/~llmen/pod.jpg

Unfortunately, she does not as yet have a photo of the plant itself,
but from her description, it sounds similar to one of the birdsnest
anthuriums and one that might be commonly available.

I'll try to get a photo of the plant itself, but in the meantime, any guesses?

From the picture of the infructescence, this could be almost any one of
the birdnest anthuriums which have red berries, which means it is more
likely from Central America or Mexico than South America. Too many
possibilities to guess without a leaf or overall photo.
But it could easily be Anth. schlechtendalii, which is probably the most
common birdnest in cultivation in Florida.

Definitely Anthurium and most probably Section Pachyneurium. See Dr.
Croat's book.... "A Revision of Anthurium Section Pachyneurium". He says
there are 114 species in this section.... as of the publishing
date..(1991). since then... God only knbows how many more... so... take
your pick..

Below are links to photos of an Arisaema which appeared in a pot of
Typhoniums last year. The spathe is rather stubby, not much more
than 1 inch (2.54cm) in height. Actually, it resembles A. flavum,
but is certainly not very yellow.

Any guesses?

I thinks its Arisaema flavum var abbreviatum.

It is certainly a flavum but not too "flavus" at all.

Cheerio,

Aroiders,

I've had a request to help ID this bulb. The requester thought it was an
aroid, which I seem to doubt (are there any aroids that are true bulbs?).

I'm not sure if the two attached photos will come through to the list.
If not then anyone willing to try an ID can email me *privately*
(please) and I'll resend the photos directly to you.

(My impression is Eucomis sp)

It could possibly be a Haemanthus bulb.

Ken, it is surely a Scadoxus and almost certainly S. multiflorus.

Eucomis is a good guess. It may also be a scilla or drimiopsis.

My vote would go to the person who suggested Scadoxus - that used to be
Haemanthus. .More specifically I think it is probably Scadoxus multiflorus
katherinae. All of my bulbs of this have that spotted look on glossy green
- more so than Eucomis or Drimiopsis. Derek

I sugegsted S. multiforus indeed but I do not agree with reason for the
infraspecific katharinae suggestion: S. multiflorus ssp. katharinae differs
from the typical subspecies and subsp. longitubus exclusively in sizes of a
number of floral characters. The spots on the "pseudo"-bulb are present in
the entire species.

Cheerio,
Wilbert

I will certainly bow to you Wilbert - good to know. I think that all mine
have come from a single plant, and I did not have a guaranteed id. on that
one in the first plac. If you know a lot about these creatures, why do you
waste greenhouse space on stinking aroids? Derek

Title: ID help

One of my pet peeves about out local conservatory is that there are so many plants
which are unlabeled.

Can anyone help ID the plant shown in the link below? The berries seem aroid-esque, but
I don’t know about the leaves. Yes, I know, a flower would have been so much better for ID, but....

It looks like Palisota barteri, a member of the

Dear Don,This is almost certainly a Palisota sp. a genus of the Family Commelinaceae which includes the better known plants Tradescantia. Leaves and berries can be quite decorative. They are mostly sub-tropical to tropical.Regards,Geoffrey KibbyLondonOn 29 Jun 2007, at 22:35, Don Martinson wrote: One of my pet peeves about out local conservatory is that there are so many plants which are unlabeled.
