  Availability of A. warocqueanum and veitchii
From: "Harold Beck" drewbeck at swbell.net> on 2003.09.05 at 14:27:17(10552)
I would appreciate any information relative to potential sources for Anthurium warocqueanum and/or A. veitchii . I would also be very interested in information regarding suitable growing environment. I live in Houston Texas and understand the problems of extremely high temperatures for long periods of time -- and the necessity for controlled conditions.

Any info would be greatly appreciated !!

Thanks, Harold Beck

harold---
i grow both species in the tampa, florida area in high humidity and
shade but without cool pads. i rely on low volume overhead emitters that cycle
every 2 hrs during the daytime and on a 54 inch exhaust fan with an automatic
shutter at the opposite end of the greenhouse. the double doors on the
greenhouse are open all year also, when the temp. is above 60 deg. it's hot here
too, but the greenhouse rarely goes above 90 deg in the summer. i maintain 60
deg minimum during the winter. i've had the plants growing under these
conditions for about 10 yrs. with no problems.

Sorry for the old URL New one is: http://www.NSExotics.com If Enid
doesn't have them at present, she soon will, I'm sure. She has many more,
too. I'm one of her customers and can vouch for the high quality of her
plant material...b.f.n....deb/AL

Thanks for the note - yes, that address works great - a nice website !! I
dropped them a note asking about potential availability - they had nothing
listed at this time--

I'm new to the aroid forum -- It certainly has been amazing how many helpful
members there are - with interest in other member's problems - I certainly
appreciate your help !!

Thanks, Harold

Lynn - thanks for the note - that is interesting - I'm somewhat familiar
with Tampa weather - seems that it is somewhat like Houston (I live in Clear
Lake - which is down toward Galveston - near the water - hot - humid) - I've
been trying to decide on what type cooling to use in the new small
greenhouse - and was looking into cooling pads as well as into the fog
emitters - I was also considering air conditioning coupled with emitters if
necessary - It sounds like from your experience that the emitters coupled
with a good exhaust system would do the trick -- the cooling pad people that
I contacted were not overly enthused - mainly because of the high humidity
here in Houston - but it sounds like for the veitchii and warocq.s that the
fog system would be fine - you have periods of high humidity also - right ??

Thanks, appreciate your input

harld---i've heard that the fogging systems work very well. i think good air
movement is very important for growing healthy plants. it compensates for a
world of 'insufficiencies'. i am near the coast, north of tampa, and yes, it
is as humid here as in the houston area, but still not the degree of humidity
you'd find in the habitats of the 2 anthuriums. i grew both outdoors till i
built my greenhouses about 10 yrs ago, and they did fine, but the occasional
storms/winds would wreck the beautiful, long foliage. they grew anyway. A.
warocqueanum has been at low elevation, less than 100 m, near the coast in
Colombia.....so, not so very different from our situations. by the way, i have
about 80% shade and grow these species in large slat baskets in a loose, epiphyte
mix, with lost of water and fertilizer year-round. my greenhouse is 30 x 45,
so a 54" fan is quite large for this size.

Dear Harold,

Please allow me to make a suggestion, you should seriously consider coming down to our Miami show later this month, you seem like the type of collector that would literally go crazy at the amount of fantastic aroid species available at the show and sale and at the many nurserys close by, all of which should be visited!! You`ll also get to meet and talk with all of us aroid crazies AND some of the world expert researchers like Dr. Thomas Croat of MOBOT who can and will answer any question, and 'Lord Phallus', our very own Wilbert Hetterscheid of the Netherlands, our featured speaker!!! Think about it, no aroid lover should pass up this opportunity for a week-end of pure bliss.

Good Growing,

Julius Boos

Julius - thanks to the encouragement from people like yourself - I have
tentatively made plans to come down to Miami for the show - looking forward
to meeting you all.

I'm sure that I can get a lot of ideas for the design of an environment for
the A. veitchii and warocq's

I appreciate your interest !

Thanks, Harold Beck

Dear Harold,

GREAT news, we look forward to meeting you! You shall have a good time! Look and ask for me, as I am quite inconspicuous, I blend into the crowd, generally hide in a corner and avoid people, speaking to no one, and when I do speak sound JUST like everyone else!!.
I do look forward to meeting you.
