  Re: [Aroid-l] Anthurium regale and the Issue of Botanical Specimens

Thank you Ted. And thanks to Dr. Croat, Julius, LariAnn,
Ron Kaufmann and the others who have guided me through observing this
plant. I did it because I was curious. And now I feel there is much
more to learn. So the next time the plant produces a spathe I will be
sitting there with camera in hand to document what I see again. Hopefully
I will learn a bit more each time.

I make no claim to being a botanist. I am not
botanically trained. I just like to read and observe the plants in my
collection. And I encourage you all to do the same. Dr. Croat has
made comments along the entire 70 plus days pointing me in the right direction
and away from some of the crazy things I wanted to assume in error. As a
result, I learned a lot about anthurium reproduction. And may have
discovered a few things others have missed before. So, grab a camera and a
notepad and watch your plants when they produce a spathe. You never know
what you just might learn. Besides, it has been fun!

Thanks again Ted, and all the others who have helped.
Hopefully after I observe this plant do this a few more times we will all know
more about this unbelievably beautiful species from Peru.
