  Anthurium seed
From: BASSPROF at aol.com on 1997.04.18 at 21:24:34(644)
After having been on the receiving end of many generous offers on aroid-l,
I'll now try to return the favor, at least in part. I have Anthurium
subsignatum var. rotundilobum(Croat) in fruit for the first time. The
infructescence is about 40cm and is covered with quite lovely, small fruit
which is transparent thus allowing me to see the seed inside!! To the point:
If any subscribers would like some seed, perhaps 10 or so per person, please
e-mail me direct at . Send your snail-mail address. I'll
fill the orders as long as there is fruit. There is no collection data on
this plant.

Many thanks to all,
Lynn Hannon

Due to the generosity of folks on this list I have sown my third species of
Anthurium. The first is on its way to third leaves the other two are newer.
I have a question: Is light required for germination of these seeds? I
lightly covered the second and third pots and it seems the seed is taking
longer to germinate.

Carlo,
I put the seed on top of the media surface... Sometimes pressing them down
even with the surface with a finger - either that or I 'water them in'. I
think that light helps. Consider how it would be done in nature.... seeds
fall off on the ground and the ants eat the berry - leaving the seed
exposed..... Or... the birds distribute them in their elimination... but
that is covered (probably). The best thing to do is experiment with the
light you have... some seeds in one pot and some in another...
