  Anthurium in St Vincent, Caribbean?
From: GeoffAroid at aol.com on 2001.07.09 at 14:26:41(6991)
Hi All,
Can someone tell me if there are any species of Anthurium commonly found in
the Caribbean, in particular St Vincent? I recently was given seed of a plant
labelled simply Anthurium "St Vincent", referring I assume to the collection
locality. The plant had large leaves the size and shape of A. andreanum but
the spathe was small and shrivelled while the spadix was about 8-10ins long
with hundreds of small red berries. Not much of a description I know and I
will try to get a photograph soon. The plant may of course have been
introduced there in cultivation but if there are any naturally occuring
species there I would be grateful if anyone (Tom?) could give me some
