  [Aroid-l] Anthurium pedatatoridium
From: crogers at ecoanalysts.com (Christopher Rogers) on 2008.06.04 at 17:03:58(17734)


I have had a specimen of Anthurium pedatatoradium for about three years. I
propagated it off of a specimen at the University of California at Davis,
which was collected by Tim Metcalf in southern Mexico a few decades ago. It
was slowly dying in my greenhouse, and then I had to move. I have been at my
new residence for nearly three months, and the plant really likes my new
greenhouse. It has put out one new leaf, with another on the way, and has
pushed out two inflorescences, one of which opened today. I have attached
the pictures here for your perusal. One picture of the entire plant, one of
the newest leaf, and one of the inflorescence, with the spathe limb just
starting to bend away.

I keep it in the coolest part of the greenhouse, with high humidity, lots of
shade, and only a splash of water every day or so. Under these conditions at
the University the parent plant was growing like mad. In my old greenhouse
my plant was barely hanging on. In the new greenhouse, it could not be
happier. Go figure.

Does anyone else have any experience with this species? Is it common in the
hobby? I ask because I have done little with the genus, mostly focusing on
the tuberous taxa.

Happy days,
