  Anthurium Renaissance
From: David SCHERBERICH <earmag at cybercable.tm.fr> on 1998.04.16 at 15:32:31(2007)
Dear all,

while I was in a supermaket plant department this afternoon, I found a
very big Anthurium from section Pachyneurium (birdnest) that was labeled
Anthurium 'Renaissance'. The blade had no collective vein and the
petiole was quadrangular, ribbed abaxially, the inflorescence erect,
purplish if I remember well. It was very expensive, about $ 120 !!! It
probably comes from Holland as does most of the plants there. Does
someone know if this is a hybrid or a cultivar of a species ?

David: I sort of sounds like a form of Anthurium schlechtendalii Kunth.

I know that Anthurium 'Hookerii' has been put into culture... Only thing
is that it is not 'hookerii'. Croat says that it is a form of A.
schlectendahlii (spelling). This is a common landscape plant here in S.
Florida. Your plant is probably one of the TC plants. Hope this helps...
