I bought this plant from Tropiflora years ago that was tagged as A.
rzedowskii, but quickly learned it didn't match the description of the
true A. rzedowskii:
Back then, I also asked on this list for help in identifying this
plant. The only helpful response I remember was from Dewey Fisk
(couldn't find it in the archives, may have been a private email)
saying that this plant had appeared for sale from time to time under
this name, and that they all originated directly from a grower in
Hawaii. Unfortunately the nursery was unable to provide any helpful
details on this plant's origin.
Attached is a picture of my plant that sadly dropped dead for unknown
reasons the year I purchased it. It was a very distinctive plant, with
the overlapping lobes and thick bulate leaves held upward on long
petioles. I have not seen this plant available anywhere since then, but
hope to come across another to add to my collection.
Hope this was of some help.

I need a little ID help.
I bought this Anthurium at a local
nursery some time ago with the tag labeled 'Anthurium rzedowskii'.
The nursery had it out in bright
light and it was really suffering with scorched blades and dry
conditions. It took years to bring it back, but now it seems happier.
It has been a very slow grower only
producing a few new blades each year. It seems to like moister
conditions and lower light.
I'm not sure if it was labeled
correctly and was wondering if anyone could tell me if they have this
in their collection and if the name is correct, or what the name might
It is unlike any other Anthurium we
have, specially with it's fibrous trunk. Also, the way the petioles do
not brake off easily when the blades grow old and fade, but must be cut
to be removed.
Thanks for any input,
