&gt;Subject: [Aroid-l] Maturity of Anthurium infructescence
&gt;Date: Mon, 29 Nov 2004 09:21:30 -0600

Dear Don,

Some Anthuriums require a LONG time for the infructesence to develop and ripen, up to over a year in some species, other species seem to require a few months, I have no exact reports on these times, just from observation and memory. Other aroids vary a LOT in the length of time needed, from weeks in Caladium and its allies, to over a year in Dracontium and some Anthuriums. Room here for a wonderful article!
Good Growing,

;My only previous experience with a fruiting Anthurium was with A.
&gt;trinerve (has anyone been able to locate seed or other source for
&gt;this?), and the fruit seemed to mature within a matter of a month or
&gt;My Anthurium halmoorei has finally seemed to set fruit, but seems to
&gt;be taking it's good natured time to mature.  Here is a link to a
&gt;photo of an approximately 5 month old infructescence:
&gt;Is time to maturity primarily a species dependent event, or could it
&gt;be delayed because the temperature at which I keep the plant is only
&gt;about 70F/20C?  The plant seems healthy in all other respects.
