Re: [Aroid-l] Delivery Status Notification (Failure)


Hi Julius (and others),

The botanic garden in Stockholm, Sweden is the Bergius Botanic Garden (Bergianska trädgården), Frescati 104 05 Stockholm. Their website is: www.bergianska.se (in Swedish....), and the person to contact would probably be the Director, Prof. Birgitta Bremer and her email is birgitta.bremer@birgianska.se. It is a small but very lovely gardens with a reasonable sized tropical house with some nice Anthuriums, not all labelled plus other aroids. I don't remember any other data on the label except its name...sorry. 

Attached is a second photo taken a year or two later after they had moved the plant, the misters were on hence the slightly foggy appearance, plus I also attach a close up of the flower which was just starting to produce berries (bright red) so it does seem to self set (unless it had crossed with something else in the greenhouse. I do have higher resolution shots of these same photos if anyone wants them.

Best wishes,
Geoffrey
(p.s. Julius make sure you are emailing my Yahoo address not my old AOL address!).

Dear Steve,

A favor--please forward the note (below) to Geoff Kibby in the U.K., for
some reason my messages to his e-mail address keep bouncing back w/ a
'delivery failed' note.

Thanks,

Julius

Dear Geoffery,

Thanks so very much for letting us view this fantastic Anthurium plant!  
Did it have a label w/ collection information??   If not, is there a way to
contact them and so ask for this info.??   I`m certain Dr. Tom Croat, and in
fact all of us would love to learn where it was collected !!
This plant will only add to Steve`s interest (in fact all of our interests!)
in learning all that we can about the Anthurium section Cardiolonchium, as
it seems that this most desirable and beautiful group is in need of lots of
work.
Just this morning I was checking Tom`s work on A. costatum C. Koch and
Bouche from the Cordillera de la Costa in Venezuela, what a plant!   Leaves
with a blade 123 cm. by 78 cm.!   Tom`s photo on pg. 23 of Aroideana Vol. 9
(1-4) of 1986 shows a leaf that just MIGHT be close to the plant in
Stockholm, but I`ll leave Tom to comment on this possibility!
My brother Hans says he will be visiting the S. coast of the Paria Penn. of
Venezuela in about a week, then his buddys will be walking up and across the
hills to the N. coast (Hans is no longer up to that treck), where they will
be met by Hans and the boat for the trip back to Trinidad.   I have asked
Hans to ask his friends to keep an eye out for this plant in the highlands,
though he holds little hope of anyone actually taking the time to make a
collection.   I can live in dreams, can I not??
Thanks again, Geoffery.

The Best to all,

Julius



Hi all,
Attached is a photograph I took a few years ago of a plant labelled  A.
marmoratum in a botanical gardens in Stockholm, Sweden, it was an 
astoundingly beautiful plant and the leaves from memory were about 3  feet
long. It was in flower as can be seen at the left. I always  thought it was
the equal if not even better than A. waroqueanum.

Regards,

to anyone or if she kept any  for herself. It was thought it could be
mormoratum or costatum. I  have never seen either this large though.
