Re: Blue Anthuriums - cont...
|Well said Corey, and I heartily agree.....being a nurseryman I am constantly affronted by the newest and latest bad fads...so to speak...and whether orchids, tulips or dahlias...I much prefer the species over the hybrids. The philo's I'm speaking of are of an unusual leaf color...such that the first time I spied one I laughed at such a gaudy plastic replica....then discovered it was a real plant with orange red foliage...it looked all the world for plastic....I can't remember the name of it...the next time I wander through the Greenhouses I shall see if they still carry it....|

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!
