  Anthurium names anyone?
From: Anne Olivier <a.j.olivier at pl.hanze.nl> on 1997.10.20 at 03:16:56(1453)

Can anyone help me to some Anthurium species names?

I happened to see a picture of some plants with in the background an
Anthurium. This Anthurium had very beautiful leaves.

This is difficult to put in writing, but the plant had a leafstalk
of about 1.5 meters and the leave hanging from it was appr.
120 cms x 40 cm. So a long slender leaf. It looked like it was still a
young plant.

I have no name of the species but I would like to ask you, does anyone
know what kind of Anthurium grows these leaves? Probably there will be
more species with this form or lookalikes.

I would very much like to try these plants and see them grow, I know of
some growers that sell seeds, but without a name I don't know what
to order.

If there is someone who has some seeds to spare now or in the future,
that would be very nice.

( I know I could look it up the new book 'Genera of Araceae', but that
will have to be a christmas buy )

Thanks everyone! Anne

Anne: There are several species that have characteristics that you
mentioned. You can see photographs of several in my revision of
Anthurium sect. Pachyneurium that might be the plant you saw. Check A.
pseudospectabile, A. spectabile, A. pendulifolium.
