    We've been on an Anthurium binge... here's some of the old ones... and a new one (it's dirty because it got splashed with mud).

    Hi putu

    I prefer the foliage type anturiums! Do you have any pics?

    I will admit that some of your flower pics may just change my preference! Some of them are stunning!!!!

    Cheers

    Palms

    Michael,
    I wish I could say I knew my Anthuriums as well as my palms. :confused:

    The one you asked about was labeled as A. corrugatum, but as I understand, there are several species that have this "look," and are misnamed all the time. The second photo in post #7 is another example of this type. These two are different.

    Below are what i think the names are. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

    The first one in post #7 I believe is Anthurium cupulispathum - But I could be wrong.
    The second, an unknown corrugatum type with very large leaves.
    The third is unknown.
    The forth is A. sp. 'Ace of Spades'

    In post #8:
    The first is Anthurium crystallinum
    The second is the corrugatum type
    The third is a small leaf of a juvenile A. magnificum

    Dean, I remember seeing a photo of you with a foliage anthurium with a very loooong leaf. Do you know the name of that one? I saw the same plant in a garden in Vista last weekend (it's quite distinctive - unmistakable), and the gentleman said it was anthurium marmorata, but I can't find that name anywhere.

    Kim,
    I believe the plant you are thinking of is Philodendron melanochrysum. JD Andersen posted a pic of me with this plant on PalmTalk not too long ago. However, there is a little controversy surrounding the name. Some call it P. andreanum. I believe both are valid names for a species, but some say they are synonymous. It appears as if the confusion lies from the fact that the juvenile leaves of both are impossible to differentiate.

    This discussion usually provides a lively exchange between aroid "experts," and I don't claim to be one. But I can take photos, regardless of what it is called. ;)

    Gina,
    Never heard of that one. But knowing your taste it must be nice (or a black one) :D
    I'll look it up. I don't suppose you have any pics???

    Dean,

    Food for thought. In post #8, the first Anthurium looks like A. clarinervum. In the floral trade, one cut leaf sells for about $10 per stem. This is before it reaches the florest shop.
