Tom, I was the one who posted the first bit asking for more information on 'Burle Marx Fantasy' and provided the link. I figured if anyone was interested I would pursue either getting a higher resolution copy of that photo (which would be larger with more detail) and/or follow up with the company to get ahold of the photographer and ask the locality the photo was taken at. I am very interested in learning more about this species as a whole, and I am a researcher so anything to help science LOL.
Hermine - are we talking the same plant? I know there is a 'Burle Marx' (which I don't know much about but it is a large green plant that I'm not sure if it is a species or hybrid) and 'Burle Marx Fantasy' which is a small, slow growing, grey-green leaf with darker markings on the veins. The photo is right on for my plant, if not a bit more green likely from processing (likely HDR or just trying to make up for low light). This is not the juvenile form of 'Burle Marx', but a completely different plant from the same source. Often when I talk about 'Burle Marx Fantasy' there is confusion for those who haven't seen it, and I hope not to start or continue confusion over it. I don't even know if anyone has even managed to flower it.

I am laughing that you ask my permission! Please, go and ask, with
my blessings....by the way I later got some more Burle Marx from Jerry
Horne in Miami FL. sometimes i bought plants of the same advertised
name in order to see if they were really the same. in fact, I still do
this. I remember seeing this picture in EXOTICA in the Brooklyn Public
Library reference section and having a conniption fit of desire over it.
middle 1960's when i was sort of an infant.
I wanted to suggest that we send this to a couple of my friends in Brazil
for their comments. Would this be ok with you?
Sorry that I asked about this. I did not realize that I still had the
message. I will, with Hermine’s permission contact my Brazilian

Does anyone know the history of this plant? I found a stock photo of what

I have grown Burle Marx for years, starting with some small plant I got
at Roehr's in New Jersey in the late sixties. something about this photo
looks highly massaged, and I do not know if it is colour enhancement or
what, since I do not have those fancy programs to do that. As I
recall, many of us plant people in NY and Massachussets who had the
greenhouse facilities, grew this plant and many of us got them from
Roehr's Nursery in East Rutherford New Jersey, a magical place.
