  Anthurium from Costa Rica
From: Don Martinson llmen at wi.rr.com> on 2002.03.10 at 17:46:25(8272)
While in Costa Rica, I spotted an anthurium with the spathe colored
as shown in the photo link below:

Is this characteristic of any particular cultivar? It appears that
the spathe eventually turns all green.

Don:

This is what is called an "Obake"-type Anthurium andraeanum hybrid, cud be
'Miura' or a derivative/sibling of this clone. This characteristic is
somewhat unstable, even in plants selected for it, and I have had "Obakes"
appear spontaneously on yer common or garden variety 'Nitta" - only to
disappear for several seasons (or forever!) on the same plant. Hmmmmmmm...

A Communist plot?

don, i'm surprised you haven't seen those; at least in nyc, they are not uncommon as cut flowers. i personally don't like them that much, they look like monstrous anth. on steroids... the shape and size are huge and they come in several colors.

Hello Friends,

WAy back (35-40 years?) in
Trinidad when my Dad used to cross-pollinate Anthuriums and develop new
colors and shapes, we weeded out any that had the green 'extentions' to the
spathe, these were considered to be serious 'faults' back then, but these
were developed in Hawaii to be this 'type' of Anthurium and today are
considered by some to be beautiful!
