Re: Spathiphyllum ID

Jared, it didn't dawn on me you might be thinking the plant was dead.  I've been reminded by two experts that this plant is not necessarily a goner just because the spathe and foliage have been removed.  If the stem and roots are still intact where the plant was planted it will  grow again.  If the stem and roots have been dug up but not destroyed just replant them.  Since this is an established specimen chances are high your friend will see a recovery faster than expected.  Anthurium species can tolerate fairly long periods without water and recover nicely.  In fact, if you only have a descent chunk of the stem with a few roots you can plant them and have even more plants.

Appears to be an Anthurium but I can't be certain of the hybrid (or species) since your spadix photo doesn't clearly show the spathe.  My guess would be a hybrid form of Anthurium plowmanii.

Hi. I was a member a long time ago, and have recently rejoined. I am a general plant enthusiast in Tucson.

I just had a friend who had a little accident with his plant. His gardener hacked it up pretty good. He wants a replacement, but I am not sure exactly what it is. I think it is a Spathiphyllum species. But I am not totally sure. Here are some image links. Can anyone identify this for me and even better, let me know where I could obtain a nice large specimen? It is a rather large plant, or at least it was before it was "trimmed".


thanks. And I look forward to corresponding with you guys again. I remember some real plant nerds in this list! (that is, of course, a compliment)

((Expecto Patronum))
