I have an A. pallidiflorum also. I have never had any trouble with getting flowers, but then it always does get a big temperature drop in the winter. I have berries on about one fourth the inflorescences, without doing anything. Indeed, the plants are up about ten feet off the ground, so it is out of the way to go up and pollinate the plants. I might have a bunch of berries in the next week or so.


Happy days,

I have an Anthurium pallidiflorum which had never bloomed since I got it.  I shocked it this winter by placing it in a very cold window- too cold really- but it produced 4 inflorescences in the following 2 months.   BUT the female flowers never produced any droplets along the spadices, although the inflorescences  did produce scent and turn yellow, while producing lots of pollen.   As a result, I got no berries.  Does anyone know why the plant wouldn't produce the droplets, (like maybe I let it warm up too much when the blooms were active)  or if this is what is supposed to happen with this species?  Or is it an obligate out-crosser or something?   Thanks, Mike Kerlin
