Some of the new philodendrons? Dare I ask?

I am a species fan, but still love some hybrids as they can bring out some real quirks of the genetics (as long as you preserve the species as well!) but these "short cuts" just for a buck (dyes, glitter, paint, etc) really horrify me a lot of times. It makes me wish people would just buy the fake ones that look like that. I feel sad that people can't even like the plant for itself as a living thing :( Now even plants must be modified beyond nature just to add to our sensory overload!

I came across an article pertaining to it in the Greenhouse Grower E-zine. They also hyped up the Blue mystique orchid...both of which are specifically designed to the design/monetary challenged...(Wal-mart shoppers) but its not said so blatantly...the Anthurium is a smaller flowered form so as not to be so obtrusive in the home decor. I don't remember who is selling these but it doesn't surprise me as several years ago folks might remember the lovely pointsettias that were dyed and glittered......and look at what they've done with some of the new Philodendrons....and they're real plants......

Where was this picture taken?  What company is selling these?  I know there are labs out there now using gene spicing from other plants to try to get blue flowers on anthurium but I do not think they are far enough along to get these results.  If they were they would have done it on a large flower anthurium they use for cut flower because that is where the money is.
