RE: Anthurium trinerve

To Geoffrey & others,

Anthurium trinerve is available in Holland indeed because it is produced
by one of the largest Anthurium breeding outfits in the world, Anthura
BV. The selection they sell has the cultivar name 'Antrio' and is
marketed under it's trademark White Pearl. 

A second cultivar that was going to be introduced under the name 'Britt'
turned out to be indistinguishable from 'Antrio' and was retracted.
