Caladium bicolor var. rubricundum. HEL
Hi group! Sorry to have been
away for so long, but I've been off looking for that giant anthurium in the
jungles. I was recently in Puyo, Pastaza, and a friend had this stunning aroid
growing in her garden. She told me it was callled Corazon de Jesus, which
traditionally would mean it's a Caladium, but I've never seen one quite like
this before. The leaf was about 14" from sinus to tip, and about 12" across
the widest part of the blade; there was a single, slightly hairy petiole with
no geniculum, and that was it. The whole thing was about 24" tall at the
Any ideas on what this might be? She said she dug it out
of the forest about 2 km from her house.
