  Re: [Aroid-l] black Anthurium

Hi All,
The collection records in Tropicos indicate that
this species was collected at 1300-2600 m elevation. I've been told
by the folks at Ecuagenera that this species does best under cooler conditions
than many other Anthuriums, and my experience has been that warm conditions
(high temperatures consistently in the low 90s Fahrenheit, 32-34 deg Celsius)
lead to progressive decline in the plant. Currently, I grow this
species successfully in a humid area that seldom exceeds 86 deg F/30 deg
C during the day and cools down to 60-62 deg F/15-16 deg C at night.
