mardy called to say these 3 are indeed indoors, in his pool house. so that explains their frost tolerance. but i still say they look amazing. i grow a. veitchii and a. waroqueanum in my greenhouse, and i thought mine were pretty til i saw these pictures. twice as big and perfect leaves! how do you get perfect leaves anyway?!? makes me smile and think of the perfect dogs in "best in show." well, mine are still pretty. i'll just reassure mine that they can be proud they're distant cousins of mardy's anthuriums. maybe they'll glow with the association.
great photos, great plants. is that mardy darian? if so, i am amazed he can grow those aroids outside in vista (near san diego)! it gets into the low 30s! also speaks to his success humidifying the microclimate under his palm overstory, cause it's almost desert in vista. congratulations!
Mardy wants to share his happy results in growing Anthurium veitchii, warocqueanum and an unknown. Any ideas on the unidentified one would be appreciated. banta

The large unknown species of anthurium could be a form of A. marmoratum

Hi John et al.,
Very impressive results!!
To me, the unknown Anthurium resembles A. angamarcanum. Tom and I talked about
this species last month, and I'm basically representing my understanding of what he
told me about the type specimen and the confusion about naming with regard to this
species. John - if you are in touch with Mardy, please let him know that I'd be
happy to drive up to Vista and look at the plant in person some time.
