Re: [Aroid-l] unusual Anthurium berry

I agree with Don: this looks like the variable species that is common in
gardens (although I would not venture a name). The hanging infructescences
are because the plant is growing over the side of the pot, and are like all
those in my garden which "hang" when growing in a tree or lie flat along the
ground or a leaf when this is their only option since they do not have the
rigidity to support the weight of the developing fruits.

It always seems such a shame to waste these fruit masses, but the seedlings
come up from them like grass and die from overcrowding unless a few are
picked off the spadix when young and grown on.

   This looks to me like the common anth. schlectendallii by the berries and

leaf bases. Though the spadix is usually more green to purple than the white

color it looks in the photo.  years ago I sent pictures of many birdnest 
anthuriums to Croat for identification, and he labeled most of them to be 
this schlectendallii. so it is a variable plant, and common in collections.
