  Two Anthuriums in need of ID
From: AROIDIAN at worldnet.att.net (LariAnn) on 2007.12.16 at 21:10:04(16829)
Fellow Aroiders,

I have a couple of Anthurium plants that I need IDs on. Please check
the following links and see if these plants are familiar. Since I have
hybrid seedlings growing on now for both of them, the correct ID is very
important. Thanks

Hi LariAnn,

Please tell what shape the petiole is on anthdkv. Is it 'D' shaped?

LariAnn, the first picture is definitely berriozabalense, which tends to produce seed easily. I just collected seeds that were at least 1/4 inch each, making the berries over 1/2 inch wide. the second picture looks like a caribeaum or a small cordatum, which usually has small bumps on the leaf surface. Both used to be common in Miami.
and Julius, cubense is a GORGEOUS species! (Dewey always loved that adjective for plants). The plants that I have grown as cubense have large, wide dark green leaves with a u-shaped petiole, producing lots of seeds on a short peduncle. Like a plowmannii on steroids. Denis/Bill had the biggest anthurium in the display this year, a cubense with leaves bigger than Julius!
Anyway, merry christmas to all.
