Anyone know the storage requirements for this
species? Dry or in soil? Mine's just going down for it's first nap,
so that info would be really handy, Thanks.

I can only answer from my own observations. The plant
comes from the rainforests of Panama. I have exchanged emails with a
grower who has a nursery in Panama and as a result of his answers have tried to
duplicate the conditions as best possible.

The plant grows in a high humidity environment as an epiphyte
(in trees). As a result I grow mine in 85% or higher humidity year
round. Mine receives filtered sunlight. The plant is in a large
wooden orchid basket and the roots are packed with humus rich materials and
completely covered with sphagnum moss. The roots have extended beyond the
edges of the wooden basket and are now attached to the wood. The moss is
constantly kept moist and the plant is watered daily in the heat of the year, 3
to 4 days a week in the winter. It has produced 5 new leaves in one year,
the longest of which is now over 75cm (30 inches). When I failed to water
it as outlined above in December the plant began to droop and was obviously in
need of water. Ever since, I have maintained the regimen. As a
result the plant is now beginning to add another leaf. Although I have a
large number of anthuriums currently in flower, this one has yet to produce an
inflorescence.

Obviously, I didn't read the question well! We just
returned from a 4 hour drive and my brain was still on auto-operation! I
read this as Anthurium spectabile! Sorry about that!

Right, then forget my answer. Wasted
time.
