I have an Anthurium (bought as A. dussii), that has had it kind of
rough the last few months, but it's hanging in there. (Hurricanes Rita
& Ike (Ike was the final straw) pretty much ruined our home and part of
the greenhouse & shade houses). We bought a house this past Jan.
Now I'm in the southern end of zone 8. About a week ago it
started sending up 2 growths from below the soil line. I have others
that grew a 'side crown' like you mentioned. The first one that
comes to mind like that is the Anthurium watermaliense. I divided it and
they're both doing great. The mama plant is about 3 ft tall (at top of
foliage) and the largest leaf is about 20 inches (50.8 cm) long and 9
inches wide (22.9 cm). Come to think of it I have an A. schlechtendalii
that also had a side growth (from below the soil line) that I divided as well
and all are fine. I even got 2 seedlings out of the tangle of roots when
it was separated. Most of the other Anthuriums have not multiplied...
yet! But I'm certainly hopeful! Do you have one that is sending up
the secondary growth you were asking about?
Best of luck,

do anthuriums ever divide vegetatively by growing a side
crown or a runner?
