  Re: [Aroid-l] Does anyone grow the real Anthurium hookeri?

I grew a crop of seeds froom my stock plant but nobody wanted any so I stopped growing them....there is too much confusion in our industry because growers, interiorscapers and landscapers are saying "Hooker" but they realy mean Pachyneurium Birdsnest types. Next time I have seeds, I'll send them to you and you can give them away to any one who needs them.

they are not Pachyneurium Group Birdsnest Anthuriums and are not as durable as some of the others but they grow just as easy. Got my mother plant from Dr.Tom at Mobot at a Aroid distribution. I haven't seen it lately, I guess I'll have to get my machete out and go to house #6 to the rain forest and track it down.
