  black anthurium
From: Piabinha at aol.com on 2001.03.12 at 20:36:01(6029)
hi all,

i was just at the philadelphia flower show this weekend. tito wee and his
company (dragon-agro) was there selling some pups of a black anthurium,
unfort. not in bloom, but there was a pic of the inflor. both the leaves and
the inflor. look very much like andreanum, except that it is black and the
spadix is curly, kind of like scherzerianum. did we figure out yet what this
is? is it a warm grower?

they were being sold for $60 each. dragon-agro seems to be specializing in
rare and pricey stuff, they had sold some Bulbophyllum fletcherianum the day
before (i was told) for $500 each, and a huge Tacca nivea for $1,000!!!!

at the hortic. competition, there were several very nice blooming Arisaemas
and a large clump of Pinellia cordata in bloom.
