  Unknown aroid pict. now available!

Dear Aroiders,
The picture of my Mystery Aroid from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is now
viewable at:
http://www.execpc.com/~llmen/anthur1.jpg

Both Don Burns and Tom Croat took a stab at ID-ing it from my admittedly
vague description, both suggesting one of several species of Anthurium
(Pachyneurium section). I regret I wasn't able to get a picture of the
fruiting bodies - my film ran out! They were both pretty well mature with
yellowish-green, somewhat translucent berries. I did manage to collect
some seed and would be happy to make it available to anyone interested.
Please contact me by private e-mail. Thanks again for everyone's help.

Don Martinson

Don,
I will, of course, defer to Tom Coat but the Mystery Aroid shows a striking
resembelence to Anthurium plowmanii....

Dear Don,

It could be Anth. halmoorei from western Mexico. It also has greenish
yellow berries ...

Regards

David

I have this exact same plant at home.. It's labeled Anthurium "Rancho
Ruffles" I think it's of the Hookeri (sp?) persuasion.

Yes, I thought it was A. plowmanii... which is the botanical name for A.
"Rancho Ruffles"... Which, btw, I introduced into the trade many years
ago... However, A. plowmanii has red berries and thus is eliminated from
consideration as subject plant is said to have yellow berries...

Tom, have you had the opportunity to check this out...

I can't recall if I mentioned it, but the seeds from this which Dewey
sent over a year ago are all fine plants now--7 of them--and I'm looking
forward to seeing flower sometime now...mine do not look so ruffled as in
the picture, however. Somewhere I have a picture which I will scan...

Clear skies,
Al

Interesting I had always thought it was a hookeri mutation, but then I
don't know much about anthuriums! hehe.. Well, for everyone out there in
aroidland, I heartily recommend this plant, though.. It's pretty sturdy..
I've managed to forget to water it for a couple months at a time when my
schedule gets really hectic, and not only does it NOT show any ill effects
but the durned thing is BLOOMING.. *laugh* (Plus it looks really cool too
heheh)
