  Anthurium x Marie?

I was wondering how dark of a maroon color these guys get and what conditions are best to maintain? I noticed some huge plants at a local nursery the other day with very dark maroon leaves, i was under the impression they only had "tints" of color but certainly not these.

It was because of the rich color, that may not have remained through propagation from seed, that my husband put Anthurium Marie in tissue culture. We grow ours under 30% shade screen and they are very dark. The new leaf comes out bright green but darkens as it hardens off. If you'd like, I'll send you a picture.
