Re: [aroid-l] Anthurium faustinomarindeae

Anthurium faustinomirandeae, is Southern Mexican Anthurium from the Atlantic
Coastal plateau of Chiapis. It was first introduced to South Florida by the
late Monroe Birdsey who grew it in the bright shade his yard under the pine
trees. He mistakenly identified it as A. titanum (synonymous with A.
xanthosomafolium) which is also large Anthurium from Chiapis but from a
mountainous area at higher altitude. Just recently Dr Tom Croat from
Missouri Botanic Garden in St Louis as a new species and named it after
Faustino Miranda the man who first collected it and put in the botanic
garden in Chiapis. Anyway, we originally sold them as A. xanthosomafolium
and then A. titanum and just recently have corrected our price list to show
the true name.  It makes an excellent landscape plant under bright shade
here in south Florida. it has leaves 3 feet by 3 feet and looks spectacular
in a large specimen pot on a patio or atrium.
