New Anthurium thread

Recommended Posts

Just acquired this possible hybrid Anthurium from a friend.  He has a couple of these in the ground here in Encinitas, so I intend to try planting this one in my garden too.

Just posting a photo of this A. marmoratum ( thanks Gina for the ID), it’s looking great this season. Normally it looks a bit tattered because of the large soft leaves and even the slightest poke or gust of wind creates a tear.

Spring has arrived and I'm seeing some new growth on this still unidentified Anthurium species.

I really like these.  Would be nice to be able to grow these outdoors as you are to accommodate those Huge leaves.

After a few years growing this A. Wendlingeri, I’m getting close to witnessing the curious ‘pig-tailed’ spiraled spadix.  I’ll update with another photo when it fully unfurls.  
 

They were difficult and expensive to obtain a few years ago.  I was happy to get this from ecuagenera.  They usually have reasonable prices but  it was pricey for them.  Maybe they are more readily available these days.

I got one from them when they were on sale. Mine is just about mature enough to bloom, I just repotted it. We can compare blooms at some point!

I have a huge number of 2 year seedlings I hybridized. They are all growing really well. I had to make some shelves in the GH for them all, to get the up off the ground. I've never had shelves or benches before...I don't really like the look. But they are working pretty good so I will put up with it.  I just repotted everything, I'm still working on some spring repots.

Yes, we will have to do that!  Right before ecuagenera made theirs available I bought one from a CA grower (who also has a ghs in Costa Rica?).  Anyhow, he crossed parents known to produce very long leaves and sold the seedlings.  I’ll be curious to see how that wendlingeri seedling compares with the ecuagenera one when they both mature.

Such a nice display of patterns and forms on your creations. Looking like a lush, tropical living wall in your greenhouse!

Thanks! Do you have Anthurium sp. Limon? I picked one up in a trade 3-4 years ago. Ecuagenera had them for sale for a very brief period and I have never seen them there again. The person I got mine from got it at the IAS show in Miami.

It's a climber, I think mine is nearing maturity. When it gets mature enough it splits into a trilobe form

I’ve never seen those before. The trilobe form sounds like it is worth waiting for. I’ll keep an eye out for one. Thanks.

It’s always the top of the leaf (lobes?) that brown/crisp first with my warocqueanums, and sometimes veitchii.  60% humidity, range between 60-75 degrees F, in ventilated glass cabinet.

Anyone else experience this? Wondering if they get rid of excess salts that way.

Otherwise, healthy looking intact leaves, each one generally larger than the last leaf.  This one is about to flower and produce its largest leaf yet; so, I’m thinking the conditions should be fine.  Not sure what the missing cultural elements are.

Since I don;t grow in a cabinet, I can't really say...but my suspicion is, its too close to the grow light

Aaah.  Thank you.  That may be it.  I was so focused on the humidity with these that I wasn’t even thinking of excessive lighting damage.

This baby is going off the script. I think it's A. furcatum, but the tag was lost. It just keeps getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger
