  Request for Anthurium ID

Fellow Aroiders,

I just posted a page illustrating an Anthurium I have been working with,
but for which I have no specific name or other information. Does anyone
recognize this species (I'm sure some of you out there know exactly what
this one is!)?

Here's the link: http://aroidiaresearch.org/apalmi.htm

Best regards,

Dear Larianne:

This does not key to any species really well but does it have
short internodes? If so it is Anthurium croatii. If assuming that it
has long internodes and is a climber it keys (sort of) to A. kunthii
Poepp. But it has 7-9 leaflets whereas Madison's key limits it to 7
leaflets. Tell me about the internodes.

I think you're growing Anthurium polyschistum R.E. Schult. & Idrobo. Check this link on my website.

Steve: This is not A. polyschiztum, but A. croatii.

I could see that after your response Tom. But this was certainly a good excercise in learning differences in species. Thanks for your pointers.
