  Anthurium Leafs
From: MOTO_DO at t-online.de (Thomas Mottl) on 1999.01.20 at 12:58:47(2930)
Aroiders, Anthuriophiles,

which cellular structures in Anthurium leafs are responsible for that
sparkling and glimmer which can be seen at some species from Section
Cardiolonchium, for example. A. crystallinum?
Are there Calcium-oxalat Raphides in upper leaf layers, or what else.
And could this only be seen in this section? (I think it is not so).
And is it worthy to take a look in the microscope?
