Some Anthuriums require a LONG time for the infructesence to develop and
ripen, up to over a year in some species, other species seem to require a

and memory. Other aroids vary a LOT in the length of time needed, from
weeks in Caladium and its allies, to over a year in Dracontium and some
Anthuriums. Room here for a wonderful article!
