This is what is called an "Obake"-type Anthurium andraeanum hybrid, cud be
'Miura' or a derivative/sibling of this clone. This characteristic is
somewhat unstable, even in plants selected for it, and I have had "Obakes"
appear spontaneously on yer common or garden variety 'Nitta" - only to
disappear for several seasons (or forever!) on the same plant. Hmmmmmmm...
A Communist plot?
