Re: Anthurium pedatatoradiatum

I know that our South Florida growing conditions are very different from tose elsewhere, but on my experience with pedatoradiatum I can't imagine it needing to be cosseted, or giving any trouble. I collected my original plant growing on top of a bare rock in full sun in Mexico about 25 years ago. It, and many of its  offspring, have grown in my garden sandy soil with heavy mulch eince then. They flower and set fruit readily, and the seedlings grow right away in regular Promix BX.
I should think that very sharp drainage and good light are the keys for you.
-------------- Original message from "Christopher Rogers" <crogers@ecoanalysts.com>: --------------



I have had a specimen of Anthurium pedatatoradium for about three years. I propagated it off of a specimen at the University of California at Davis, which was collected by Tim Metcalf in southern Mexico a few decades ago. It was slowly dying in my greenhouse, and then I had to move. I have been at my new residence for nearly three months, and the plant really likes my new greenhouse. It has put out one new leaf, with another on the way, and has pushed out two inflorescences, one of which opened today. I have attached the pictures here for your perusal. One picture of the entire plant, one of the newest leaf, and one of the inflorescence, with the spathe limb just starting to bend away.


I keep it in the coolest part of the greenhouse, with high humidity, lots of shade, and only a splash of water every day or so. Under these conditions at the University the parent plant was growing like mad. In my old greenhouse my plant was barely hanging on. In the new greenhouse, it could not be happier. Go figure.


Does anyone else have any experience with this species? Is it common in the hobby? I ask because I have done little with the genus, mostly focusing on the tuberous taxa.


Happy days,
