  Coconut husks
From: "Jaime Rodriguez" <jaime at matnet.com> on 1997.10.16 at 14:12:12(1445)
Hello Aroiders,

Maybe I just have the luck of the ignorant. Last winter I came upon an
Anthurium Clarinervium with ripe seeds, so I harvested them. I germinated
them in moist paper towels in baggies and planted them in Pro-mix. They
are doing great. All this fuss about coconut husks is only relevant if you
have coconut husks handy. Last time I checked, global warming had not
proceeded enough for the coconuts that wash ashore here to take root.

I guess I am missing the fine points of the discussion. Are anthuriums
more difficult to raise than I have found them to be? Is there some
aesthetic reason that makes coconut husks a preferred choice?

I don't know how long it will take for my plants to mature and bloom. ( I
have 6) I hope to get more ripe seeds from the parent plant in a few more
months. Is there a mechanism within this list for sending seeds to share?
