I wanted to thank those of you who assisted me in tracking
down good info regarding Philodendron stenolobum. I've now
written my posting for this plant and got it up. Those of you who know the
plant may want to double check what I wrote and let me know if I got anything
wrong or left something major out.

Thanks again for the help!

Steve Lucas

Title: RE: [Aroid-l] Anthurium hueglii?


You can find it under "Anthurium huegelii" in Tropicos on line. it appears to be synonymous with A. hookerii.

I've seen the name referenced in a book recently published by an older landscape Archetect in which he listed all his favorite landscaping plants for South Florida....I think he used it as others still do use the name "Anth. Hookerii" as a catch all name for all the large bird's nest types (mostly pachyneurims types) which work so well in the South Florida landscape. As we know very few any of what is advertised in the trade as A. hookerii is rarely hookeri, but one of the various Pachyneurium species such as A. cubense or A. schlechtendalii.

Dear Denis,

Thanks! Tom gave me some info on this species, he says that though it
LOOKS like a typical birds nest Anthurium, it has so many unique features
that it may eventually be put into its own section. The next question is
does anyone on aroid-l have collected or at least labeled specimens in their
collections, or do I have to look for it on my next visit, who knows when,
to Trinidad??

The best,
