I keep one Anthurium gracile in a terrarium mounted on a natural looking foam background.  So it is growing completely epiphytically.  It, after 3 months is finally beginning to grow roots to attach itself to the background and is putting out inflorescences on a regular basis.  I have some seedlings that have been growing extremely slowly on a piece of drift wood in the same terrarium, but these are attached to the wood and would most likely die if detached.  Overall the plant is very hardy.  Just keep it moist.  Use sphagnum bark mix if kept in a pot.

I found this clump of a self heading Philodendron in
an older neighborhood. Can't tell if it is a form of
P. bipinnatifidum (selloum) or a different species or
hybrid. Any ideas?

A friend of mine from the Philippines asked me to post the following:

The bat alocasia (from Aklan, Panay Island) is finally described.
George Yao posted it in Aroideana as Alocasia advincula 2 years ago. The
problem is that it was not described scientifically and the name advincula
was published. this resulted in nomen nudum and advincula grex may not be
used again for Alocasia.
Lanie medecilo finally submitted Alocasia nycteris Medicilo, Yao et Madulid.
That is now the official name. Please inform all aroiders of the change. i
believe the different collectors in US are using Alocasia advincula "Bat
