FYI, the plant that the Indonesians, not South-east asians, crazy about is
Anthurium jenmanii Hort. They are progenies of many interspecific cross of A.
jemanii. This bases on the fact that the population show a high degree of
segregation on leaf color & size and venation. In my opinion, A. bonplandii
guayanum as well as A. cubensis involved.
