Re: Anthurium with double spathe.

Hello! Ohh! So this is a result of tissue culturing? And there is a posibility that this plant will stop producing these double spathes? Well... somehow this is a little deceptioning. At least the spathe has a great color. If there are no more doubles, at least the color will look really great in my collection.
 
Thanks to every body for all the help!
Cheers,
Jorge Joel...

> Dear Jorge Joel,

> This is one of the many Anthurium hybrids loosly based on A. andreanum, and the double spathe is thought to be a result on chemical treatments during the tissue culture/cultivation process. It is particularly common in Spathiphyllums which you can see at the ''big box'' stores sold there by the millions. These plants are subjected to multiple chemicals as tiny plantlets still in the tissue culture flasks at the lab, some to make them grow faster, to produce abundant leaves, then when out of the flasks and growing, other chemicals are sprayed on their leaves to make them all bloom abundantly and all at the same time/month/season, so as to be able to market a bunch of blooming plants all together. Many will be seen to have deformed or double, sometimes tripple spathes and spadices.
> In time the plant will ''grow out'' from the influence of the chemicals and again begin to produce ''normal'' one-spathed blooms.

> Yes, some cultivated aroids often produce double spathes especially when they are in bad condition, although there are cultivars which produce always two spathes like some Anthurium, Spathiphyllum and Zantedeschia. Many garden companies treat the plants with special chemical substances to produce such inflorescences, but as you buy them the next flowers are normal (or even sometimes the plants die). You can see some examples of such odd inflorescences in the www.aroid.org website.
