Dear Steve,


I started seeing Anthurium similar to your first photo in Minas Gerais, Bra zil, many years ago. I suspected then that these were hybrids. I have sin ce seen other such plants in collections under various names that are not o fficially recognized. I grow something very similar to the plant illustrat ed, but I do not assign it any name. Mine has the velvety black black-gree n blades of several species...ie. Anthurium magnificum, etc. The lateral l obes are present, but I do not know where this characteristic comes from. Perhaps someone with hybridizing experience can enlighten the forum on this.

Now. There is an Anthurium being sold out there called Anthurium chamberla inii...another unofficial name, if I am not mistaken. It is quite a beauty with deep red new growth and a tulip form inflorescence. I suspect this i s a hybrid...but, someone with more hybridization experience should comment . This comment is a tangent on the subject, not an identification on the s econd photo.
