  RE: black anthurium

This anthurium is definitely NOT a warm grower. One of the orchid people
out of Ecuador (Ecuagenera) has been marketing a few of them at big orchid
shows around the US for a couple of years now. They are apparently from
very high elevation and tolerate little warmth. The owner of Ecuagenera is
a personal friend of mine and they have trouble growing it well in Cuenca
(intermediate temperatures, southern Ecuador). It evidently does much
better in Quito and at higher elevations.
