Title: RE: Need Anthurium anatomy lesson


        I couldn't make these out very well but I assume that all the bumps are actually pistils, not stamens.

Subject: Need Anthurium anatomy lesson

Here is a link to a photo of the spadix of my flowering Anthurium clarinervium:

I realize that this species is supposed to apomictic, but could
someone give me a brief anatomy lesson here?   I can visualize white
bumps (A), yellowish bumps (B), and brownish bumps (C).  I imagine
that some of these are male flowers, but are these all male, in
varying degrees of maturation?  Are the male and female flowers
distributed evenly along the spadix?
