  Anthurium 'Renaissance'
From: David SCHERBERICH <earmag at cybercable.tm.fr> on 1998.06.13 at 18:22:49(2291)
Tom, Dewey and other Anthurioiders,

Some time ago I posted a question regarding Anth. 'Renaissance', a
bird-nest Anthurium I found at a supermarket...

I have found a picture of this plant at the following address:


just make a search for Anthurium, it is number 120. There are also
dozens of Anth. andreanum cultivars and even a Anth. polyschistum
cultivar ...

Well, Anth. 'Renaissance' looks like Anth. plowmanii to me. Only thing is
that A. plowmanii usually has a wider leaf at the center point... But, and
this is a large 'but'.... I have seen lots of varietation in A. plowmanii
so this may be a species or it may be an F2 with some other longer leafed
species.... But, my money is on A. plowmanii....

David's Anthurium 'Renaissance" is registered here with VKC (company I
work for) and there are a few things you may want to know:

1) the plant is registered by Anthura BV (Nic van der Knaap)
2) the correct cultivar epithet is 'Antafino'
3) Renaissance is a trade mark (and thus may NEVER be put between high
placed commas!!!)
4) the cultivar is attributed to Anthurium affine by van der Knaap.

This would lead to: Anthurium affine 'Antafino' Renaissance as the full

The last option maybe o.k. since Tom Croat often visits van der Knaap
here in Holland and identifies the plants. Maybe Tom has any
recollection of this Anthurium affine.
