Re: [Aroid-l] Anthurium superbum
It's my experience that A. superbum is extremely discreet about its
sexual phases, I could never see the pollen or fluid either. We used to
depend on the insects to pollinate our plants as we assumed they could
tell by smell when the inflorescences were fertile. In more recent days
I have actually gone out to the plants and run my fingers up and down
the spadices of the various phases hoping the this process would
transfersome the invisible pollen to the not so apparent stigmatic fluid
of the flowers in the receptive mood. Even though this method sounds
unscientific and really rather dorky, it works if you have time to go
out and run your fingers over them on a regular basis. At least the
insects have a good reason to be there.

I'm fine, thank you. :-) And, it looks like you are able to do what
others find hard!
The reason I was curious was because recently I had a discussion with
a friend about his A. superbum. ( That should be A. super-bum, Ted.
Never saw the difference before. Haha...) We were looking at his
super-bum which had a bloom laden with pollen, so I told him to save
the pollen to pollinate the next bloom. He told me he had never seen
a receptive one before, as in no glistening droplets of liquid on the
spadix. We discussed the possible reasons, but not being experts,
came to no conclusion.
Maybe you, Windy, and other experts can enlighten us?
