Dear Alan,

On checking the habitat/distribution of this magnificent plant, it is
reported that it occurs at relatively  low altitudes +-1,000--2,000 ft. in
Peruvian Rain Forest.   Below it is hinted that it is difficult to grow, and
I wonder if this is correct, or if it is just scarce in collections?
Thanks again for posting such a beautiful picture of a magnificent Aroid.


I was asked to post this message to aroid-l,


Anthurium regale (Linden)   This remarkable species was introduced into
horticulture in 1866.  In the recent IAS beauty contest for Anthuriums, this
handsome species only received 4% of the vote.  We suspect that its rarity
in collections is the reason it got so few votes.  An online picute of this
can be seen at:
http://www4.ncsu.edu/~alan/plants/aroids/anthurium/1.html   This grand
specimen was grown by Dr. Darian of Vista, California.  The species is
native to Peru and has been collected by Dr. Plowman and Dr. Croat in the
past.   Its demanding cultural requirements are a testament to Dr. Darian's
horticultural achievements.
