  Re: Anthurium divisions?

Just to add a little to what Lynn posted:
Plant Anthurium seeds in groups of three or four to a very small cell
pack or small pot (2"-3"). Plants may produce their own natural chemicals
to ward off attacks by fungi. One small plant may not produce enough, and
too many plants together may provide too tempting a treat.
Anthuriums may require fungi in order to grow correctly. So using a broad
spectrum fungicide may, in the long run be detrimental to it developing.
Fertilizers seem to play a very large part in all of this. I have found
that seedlings that have been fertilized frequently rarely (if ever) will
succumb to fungal attacks.
So don't forget the fertilizer.
Also I've found that rats also favor young healthy anthurium seedlings.
So cover the seeds with a plastic tray cover (which will also provide
that extra humidity they like) so that the mice or bushy tailed rats
can't eat your babies.
