Anyone grows these Anthuriums? I think I might have a A warocquenum! excited. Hope it doesn't melt in the heat.

I would like to get to know folks that grow these Anthuriums.

Here is a photo of Anthuriums in their native habitat in the cloud forest of Ecuador.

Hi Islaverde,

I am always intrigued with the foliage anthuriums you have. B)/>

Now I am more intrigued why you have smoothened pebbles on the surface of the pots? To add weigh to keep the pots balanced and upright so they do not topple over?

So many Anthuriums are yet to be described . Some of those look like plants brought into Australia by Equatorial Exotics .

Anthurium pseudospectabile. Endemic to Panama. It is epiphytic on trees.

Islanverde, I grow several Anthurium waocoquenaum. I didn't see a photo so I can't confirm the species, but now that I see the date this was posted you have likely already confirmed the identification. I work closely with Dr. Tom Croat of the Missouri Botanical Garden so if you have a specific question, please ask and I'll try to find an answer.

The plant in this photo appears to be Anthurium angamarcanum from Ecuador. Similar plants are also known as Anthurium marmoratum. This is an extremly variable species and Dr. Croat has said he finds new specimens all the time that appear to be a new species but upon close examination turn out to be Anthurium angamarcanum. He also believes that almost all of the species now known as A. marmoratum are simply variations of Anthurium angaracanum. A very similar plant to this was brought back by Dorothy Henkle, or so the story goes, from Colombia many years ago. You can read the story of that plant as well as these species here: http://www.exoticrainforest.com/Anthurium%...ratum%20pc.html

Dr. Ron Kaufmann from SanDiego now has a large specimen that appears identical to the plant Dorothy had and I now have a specimen taken from that parent plant. This has been one of the most sought Anthurium species since the late 1980's.

I just acquired a large Anthurium pseudospectabile. Dr. Croat has confirmed mine is tha species although several folks have doubted it to be pure since the petioles are not terete (round) and slightly flattened. Mine are roughly quadrangle with a few exceptions which are terete and have a concave side. Dr. Croat has confirmed that type does occur naturally. I've got the full description published now with a few photos of my plant. I'm trying to have someone come and hang it from the ceiling of my atrium since it is quite large. Once it is hung, I'll get better photos. The description is here:
http://www.exoticrainforest.com/Anthurium%...abile%20pc.html

If you've got more recent photos of the specimen while larger, I'd love to see them. You can contact me at Steve@ExoticRainforest.com

This one, like one below, appears to be Anthurium angamarcanum also known by the synonym Anthurium marmoratum. I'd need to see more detailed photos to be certain.

I thought I replied to this one, but maybe I screwed up since I'me quite new to this forum. The plant in the photo appears to be a form of Anthurium angamarcanum or also known by the synonym Anthurium marmoratum. Dorothy Henkle took a photo of a plant very similar with a 2 meter (six foot) leaf which appeard on the cover of the International Aroid Society journal Aroideana in the late 1980's. She claimed at the time to have found the plant in the Andes of Colombia but the elevation she listed as a description to the photo has proven to be very inaccurate. Dr. Tom Croat has been seeking the form Dorothy grew for many years and this past summer he uncovered evidence the plant Dorothy grew (which is now believed to be in Australia) was found 2000 feet (over 600 meters) higher than she stated. And to top it off, Dorothy didn't collect it! The actual collector finally contacted Dr. Croat in the summer of 2007 and gave him the coordinates where the plant was collected. At this time, Tom hasn't been able to return for another search.

I have a specimen (small) of the same plant Dorothy apparently grew. My specimen came from Dr. Ron Kaufmann in San Diego. His plant is now quite large and is being grown in a full size trash container! You can read more here:
http://www.exoticrainforest.com/Anthurium%...ratum%20pc.html

At this time Dr. Croat has elected to call Ron's plant Anthurium marmoratum since it may be a new species.

According to Dr. Croat it is his belief that all the plants known as A. marmoratum are A. angamarcanum. He and one other researcher were working on a plant similar to the Dorothy Henkle plant that may eventually prove to be a different species. Tom is currently in Ecuador so I can't confirm any of his latest information.

Nice foliage, but very slow. Some more, slugs keep chewing the leaves...argh !

Your snails have got good taste! Lovely foliage and probably equally as tasty as well.
I find that for those slow growing ones, they do better (ie grow faster) when grown in pure sphagnum moss that has been flushed all the time during watering with clean water. Let the medium dry out sometimes though.

And also, some are epiphytic and hence need to attach themselves to a support in order for their growth rate to pick up.
