I am not surprised that the Spathe was shrivelled. After all that Amorpho
stuff I'm surprised that you have much of a spadix at all. You aren't going
to sow the devil berries are you? Perhaps someone who knows will tell
Geoffrey what Vincent was canonised for....? I would be a bit more careful
wot you keep in your apartment (flat to British) especially with your
earlier mite omens. Bless You!
PS Would Peace Lilies be better for your flat?

Subject: Anthurium in St Vincent, Caribbean?
| Hi All,
| Can someone tell me if there are any species of Anthurium commonly found
| the Caribbean, in particular St Vincent? I recently was given seed of a
| labelled simply Anthurium "St Vincent", referring I assume to the
| locality. The plant had large leaves the size and shape of A. andreanum
| the spathe was small and shrivelled while the spadix was about 8-10ins
| with hundreds of small red berries. Not much of a description I know and I
| will try to get a photograph soon. The plant may of course have been
| introduced there in cultivation but if there are any naturally occuring
| species there I would be grateful if anyone (Tom?) could give me some
| Many thanks,
| Geoffrey Kibby
