Thanks Beth! I know many of the Anthurium
collectors are going to drool over these. Since your links did not come out

If you love Aroids, you are going to want some of these
plants. And Julius, I'd bet you saw Beth's really strange Anthurium near
the oil fields!

Subject: [Aroid-l] Ecuadorian
Steve over at Exotic Rainforest sent me
an email recently saying that I should share my in-situ photos of the aroids
I encounter when out hiking. I live in Ecuador, in close proximity to some
of the cloud forests where Dr. Croat does his collections. Rather than fill
your inboxes up with dozens of attachments, I've uploaded them to a gallery
for your viewing pleasure. Some of the aroids there, I have been able
to identify (with Steve's and others' kind help) and others remain NOIDS.
Many of the photos are of juvenile forms that spring up from the edges of
road cuts. If any of you recognise them, please let me know and I will
update their labels accordingly!
There are two photos marked "Mystery
Anthurium" which Dr. Croat believes may be new species. If you are
interested in seeing more photos of this particular species, they are
are four or five specimens of it growing in the Quito Botanical Gardens,
which is where I took the photos of it. It appears to have been rescued from
the oil pipeline near Mindo, Ecuador; beyond this, garden staff don't know
anything about it. It is a very large, freestanding plant - the initial
photos are of leaves just a hair over 6' in length; later photos are of
younger leaves which were only about 46" - still fairly impressive.
hope you enjoy!
