Dear Folks,
First off, I am NOT an Anthurium person, so am only offering this info. as a 'tip' to what this plant ( I have not seen a photo as yet) MAY turn out to be---at least ONE of the so-called 'black' Anthuriums is Anthurium berriozabalense--I have seen this plant presented as the 'black' Anthurium on several occasions, and though it does not have as large a spathe as the seemingly as-yet-undescribed species from the highlands of Colombia, some specimens demonstrate a respectably sized purple-black spathe, but it is carried errect on a much longer peduncle than the Colombian species.   I believe that the photos posted by a member this morning ( I had some trouble w/ the d/load, so could not keep the file!) are of Anthurium berriozablense, this species, with grey-green THICK-textured sagittate leaf blades grows in the low lands of Mexico as a terrestrial, while the species w/ the short peduncle and a much larger spathe grows as an epiphite on trees in the high altitudes of Colombia.
This is one more lesson on the value of Latin scientific names!

If you're talking about an anthurium with a flower that looks superficially
like A. andreanum, but having a deep purple to almost black spathe, yes, such a
beast does in fact exist.

hi lynn,

i got your pics.  yours does not seem to be the plant that albert refers to above, which i have also seen for sale at the ny orchid show.  your plant's spathe is not as impressive as the one mentioned above and it doesn't look like the "black andreanum."  but it's very nice nonetheless.  where did you get this?

sorry can't help you, but at least you know what it isn't... :-)
