Re: [Aroid-l] black Anthurium
From: Aroideae at aol.com on 2005.07.13 at 16:29:31(13173)|
hi geoff---it's actually A cabrerense, and old Engler species. i
believe though that it's known only from Colombia. i've had no luck
growing it. someone else will have to help you with that. i know
that a number of people grow it very well. there's little doubt about it's
identity. there are some plants floating around that have been tagged 'the
black anthurium', but these turn out to be A watermaliense.
Hi all,Does anyone have any more information about the|
mysterious Black Anthurium from Ecuador? I know this topic was discussed a
long time ago and I think that someone (Lynn Hannon?) suggested a species
called A. crebrerense (I think thats the spelling). I was sure this name was
on the species list on the aroid website but on looking again it seems to have
vanished. Has its identity been confirmed or is it perhaps an undescribed
species? It is such a large and dramatic species (Ecuagenera Orchids sell them
at most shows when they exhibit here in the UK). Any update would be welcome,
also any tips on growing it would be great, since it seems a rather fussy
species.Best wishes,Geoffrey Kibby
