I responded to you about this
earlier today based on a forward. As I said then please send images of
inflorescences when you see them. Now I am wondering if this might not be a
strange Anthurium sect. Urospadix since I don’t recognize this as anything from
the western Andes. I am hoping that Marcus
Nadruz sees this and might know it.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Does this
Anthurium look familiar?
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 be.
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.
