  Anthurium?? Pothos??
From: crogers at ecoanalysts.com (Christopher Rogers) on 2008.07.22 at 18:35:39(18217)

Okay, I have a plant that I am convinced is in the subfamily Pothoideae. The
lactifers are absent, the flowers are dioecious, the inflorescence with a
reflexed spathe limb. I am inclined to think that this plant is an
Anthurium, but the stems are woody, and the inflorescences come from the
leaf axils, sort of like Pothos (which I have never seen except in
pictures). The leaf petioles are not flattened (explanate) but I know not
all Pothos have that as a character (P. beccarianus).

I grew this from cuttings taken from a plant at UC Davis. The parent plant
is labeled as ?Philodendron scandens? which it obviously is not. Anyone have
any clue what this might be?

Thank you to all!

Hi Christopher,

This is Anthurium scandens.
For comparison you can see a natural variety I have with broader leaves named A. scandens var. latifolium:

Very Best,

Dear Christopher,

Based on an illustration in the aroid ''bible'' (T.G.O.A.), pg. 106, "C", it looks like your plant could be Anthurium interruptum.
I hope this info. helps in further searching.

Good Growing,

Dear Christopher:

It is Anthurium scandens (Aubl.) Engl. ssp scandens.

Definitely Anthurium scandens scandens.

I love this group! So much combined brain power and experience!
