Title: Message
Anthurium 'Marie' as you have it in single quotes is probably the best way to write it, since we do not know what the true parentage is. I threw in the "x" to indicate that it is not a true species but rather a hybrid of unknown parents. No, i do not think it is registered with ICRA. Nor do I know if it was patented or the name was trademarked but I doubt if either of these methods was used. the plant does not have broad enough horticultural appeal for another lab to jump on it and pirate this plant. Steve should be able to afford the expense to register the cultivar with the ICRA. These are good questions for Steve Nock... I'll ask him the next time he is in.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Anthurium Marie with infloresence

Denis, does anyone know if Anthurium x Marie is a registered cultivar?  I've seen it on the net as Anthurium 'Marie' as well as Anthurium x Marie and just Anthurium Marie.  I've had it on my website for several years as Anthurium 'Marie' but I can't be certain if it is registered.  I like to try to post plants as they are correctly classified and will change the post in an instant if I can get the correct answer.
Thanks as always!
Steve Lucas

Anthurium x Marie is a tissue cultured hybrid Pachyneurium group anthurium. it took Steve Nock a long time to breed an Anthurium with leaves as dark maroon as Marie (named after Steve's beautiful wife Marie)...It probably has a lot of mismatched chromasomes and a bit of aneuploidy thrown in and it does a lot of strange things in growth of branching too much, making mis-shapen spathes and double spadices and in some cases just totally warped growth. We've grown out 1000's of liners oof Marie and your plant is not that unusual. keep it is the brightest light possible to keep the beautiful maroon coloring in the leaves.
