RE: black anthurium

This anthurium is definitely NOT a warm grower.  One of the orchid people 
out of Ecuador (Ecuagenera) has been marketing a few of them at big orchid 
shows around the US for a couple of years now.  They are apparently from 
very high elevation and tolerate little warmth.  The owner of Ecuagenera is 
a personal friend of mine and they have trouble growing it well in Cuenca 
(intermediate temperatures, southern Ecuador).  It evidently does much 
better in Quito and at higher elevations.

hi all,

i was just at the philadelphia flower show this weekend.  tito wee and his
company (dragon-agro) was there selling some pups of a black anthurium,
unfort. not in bloom, but there was a pic of the inflor.  both the leaves 
the inflor. look very much like andreanum, except that it is black and the
spadix is curly, kind of like scherzerianum.  did we figure out yet what 
is?  is it a warm grower?

they were being sold for $60 each.  dragon-agro seems to be specializing in 
rare and pricey stuff, they had sold some Bulbophyllum fletcherianum the 
before (i was told) for $500 each, and a huge Tacca nivea for $1,000!!!!

at the hortic. competition, there were several very nice blooming Arisaemas 
and a large clump of Pinellia cordata in bloom.
