  Are these seeds? Anthurium scandens
From: "Marek Argent" <abri1973 at wp.pl> on 2010.07.22 at 13:46:02(21229)

Hello,

My Anthurium scandens var. latifolium blooms all the time and produces self-pollinated fruits.

I always thought that they were empty inside until I checked yesterday.

In each of them I found something small sticking to the inner fruit wall, one per each fruit.

Are they parietal seeds? If yes are they mature? The scale is in mm.

They are also visible in the inflorescence photo.

Best,

Marek Argent

Dear Marek:

Anthurium scandens regularly
sets seeds on its own without pollination so yes, those are surely good, viable
seeds. Where did you come up with the name var. latifolium and how does it
differ from var. scandens?

Dear Tom,

The leaf blades of var. latifolium are 5.5x4 - 8x5.5 cm

I got it from the Botanic Garden in Wroclaw, Poland

For comparison here is the typical A. scandens (var. scandens - sometimes added)

This is not my plant, so I can't tell anything about its measurements.

Marek, I think Tom was referring to the apparent fact the name is no
longer accepted. Check this link:

Dear Steve,

We are in the same situation as with Philodendron hederaceum and its varieties (micans, miduhoi).

They are not accepted by ones and accepted by others:
