Re: anthurium veitchii
Price on A. veitchii? I ordered two plants from the same folks and they
had two leaves each that were about 5 inches long.... Frankly, I thought
it was very inexpensive. At one time I sold A. veitchii for $250. that
were in 1 gallon pots with 6 inches of stem above the media. Had about 4
- 5 leaves that were 10 - 14 inches.... Now, since this is the only place
that has them for sale..... Spend your $20. and be happy.
