Re: Anthurium bakeri

Just to keep you on the alert for something else...  There are two forms of
A. bakeri that I am aware of...  One has a much narrower leaf than the
other...  by about 1/3 the width.  Honestly, I can't tell the difference
unless I see them side by side.  Both are excellent plants.

I am growing mine in just spaghnum with a time release fertilizer.  A.
bakeri is a true epiphyte.  Dr. Croat says in his "Anthurium of Mexico and
Middle America".....

The species is known from Guatemala to Colombia in wetter parts of tropical
moist, premontane wet, and tropical wet forest at elevations from sea level
to 660 m.  In Panama, the species ranges to 1,000 m elevation.  In Colombia
it is known from a single collection from Norte de Santander (Camp 84 on
Pipeline, 600m)."

(Lots of other good information in Dr. Croat's books.)

Enjoy the plant!  The red berries are spectular.
