    I haven't seen this variety anywhere else (but I'm sure it is out there). This came from the backyard greenhouse of a very old Japanese grandmother. She had many plants that could have very well come into Hawaii when she did - before World War II. She was gracious enough to give me a cutting, and as you can see, it has done very well.

    These Anthuriums will grow in the warmer areas of So. California, so should be grown more often there. I saw a beautiful red one in a hanging basket, in a coastal location, looking right at home. And these have been trouble free as far as any pests are concerned.
