  Three Plants, Several Questions
From: Don Burns <burns at mobot.org> on 1998.05.17 at 17:22:03(2158)
Having spent the better part of the day with the plants, I have several
questions.

Anthurium croatii

Hi Don,

I'm certain you'll receive many responses to your questions, but I'll give it
a go anyway. My Anth. croatii has 30" petioles and has bloomed many times, so
I'm assuming that this is perhaps close to maximum, mature size.

Phil. burle-marx 'fantasy' does seem very slow---and I am told that it is
quite unremarkable as an 'adult'. It's certainly a gorgeous 'juvenile'!! I'd
try increasing humidity---'bagging' it---to promote some leaf growth.

Best regards,
Lynn

Don,

Forgot to answer another of your questions. My Anth croatii is now carrying
about 7 leaves.

Don: My croatii that I grow at home carrys about 5 leaves though some
forms in the greenhouse do have more, I believe.
