David:  Anthurium warocqueanum occurs in Colombia in very wet forest and
does best in very humid greenhouses, especially if kept moderately cool
in the summer months.  I have seen it between 200 and about 1500 m.  I
don't personally know where one can obtain it.  It is a slow grower.
Certainly I would like to propagate it by have not succeeded.
