g'day, eugene and everybody,

yes, i'm familiar with the fern Polystichum and i've killed P. tsus-simense 
twice already.  for some reason i have seen that Anthurium labeled as 
polystichum but i guess that was mislabelled.

i've seen A. polyschistum grown at our local botanical gardens and it's a 
small anthurium.  i'm currently growing one plant that i bought from 
ecuagenera (ecuador) at the ny orchid show, which has much larger fronds; 
also they are light green rather than a dark green.  could this still be 
polyschistum or a different species, does anyone know?
