Re: Anthurium frost tolerance?

That depends on how cold it actually got and other things too.
I once assumed that Alocasia frydek I had planted one year
when it was a new release had died.  Two seasons later I
was surprised by several little offsets that were growing quite
happily (which I promptly potted up and have to this day).
I learned not to *assume*.  It may be dead, but if it isn't bothering
anything - leave it and you just never know.
If you want to be sure, dead sure, take it up and examine the roots.
Hope this helps.

2 years ago at the IAS conference I bought my mom an Anthurium with a
bright, hot pink spathe.  I planted it in one of her gardens in Venice,
FL.  It did very well until the freezing weather this past winter.  I
had hoped that only the foliage was killed and that the plant had
survived, but Mom reports that it isn't showing signs of life.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the likelihood that it survived?  How
long should Mom wait to see new growth before she assumes that it's
really dead?  It would be too bad to lose it. It was a great looking plant.
