Dear Ferenc:


            This is pretty disappointing because it does not tell you much.  A. madisonianum doesn’t even occur in South America. Anthurium coriaceum occurs only in Brazil (Do you have images of all of the above?).  I will help you with these things as time goes on.

Well, I wrote to Ecuagenera to ask about the sites where the mother plants of the plants I ordered were collected. I received the following data: 


Anthurium clavigerum comes from the Amazon side and altitud 800 msnm.
Anthurium coriaceum  and coriaceum 6 comes from the Amazon side and altitud 1000 msnm.
Anthurium flavolineatum grows at 1200 msnm and is from Amazon side.
Anthurium madisonianum grows at 1000 msnm from Amazon side.
Anthurium peltigerum cames frot the coast region and a altitud 500 msnm.
Anthurium truncicolum from the Amazon side and 800 msnm.
Philodendron acutifolium  of 1000 msnm from Amazon basing.
Philodendron barrosoanum giganteum comes from the Amazonia with at an altitud of 800 msnm.
Philodendron linnaei with at an altitud of 800 msnm form the Amazonia.
Philodendron stenolobum 1000 msnm from Amazon side.


No region or country information. Of these plants Anthurium flavolineatum, A. madisonianum and A. peltigerum seems to be the correct species (though I can only use the Internet to identify them) and I suspect Anthurium clavigerum and A. truncicolum to be correct too, though they are very young. I willmake photos when they get a little bigger. But none of the philodendrons seems to be labelled correctly. 

The good thing is that though most of them arrived in very poor condition, they all seem to do well and some have already began to grow.

We'll see what they really are.
