Re: Variegation in Anthuriums ?

I was JUST about to reply to my friend Michael Pascall in Australia
concerning this 'varegated' Anthurium. I have seen a TRUE varigated bird`s
nest-type anthurium grown from seed by Don Bittel, it was entered in the IAS
shop in Miami several years ago. I have also seen birds nest Anthuriums
and another large leaf hybrid called 'Anth. lazaro' ex-tissue culture with
dasheen mosiac virus, the last two were in a Nursery near here in WPB, the
same nursery also had Philodendrons with it, and several other aroids all
demonstrating the distinctive symptoms. The owner would not get rid of
them, he thought them attractive!
I`m glad that someone was thinking the same as I was!
yesterday if they had a special "variegated" cymbidium. What they had was a|
cymbidium with a heavy infestation of cymbidium mosaic virus.
