Re: Unidentified aroids

I agree completely with Don and Dewey. Your Anthurium doesn't seem to
be an Anthurium. I also think it is a Philodendron callosum, a very
interesting plant from Venezuela and Northern Brazil, that usually grows in
exposed patches over white sand soil or rocky outcrops. Just take a close
look at the leaves. If the lateral veins are small and paralel, you probably
have a Philodendron. If they are in a reticulate pattern, you must have a
very neat Anthurium with very glossy leaves! (I don't think so, but you
better check by yourself and let us know).
P.S. I promise won't say that your Arisema is a Gonatopus boivinii!
