Sorry, but no way on the species Anthurium hoffmannii being related to the
A. x Hoffmannii... There is no resembalence at all between the two (I grow
them both)... I am confident that A. papillilaminum is one of the parents
of A. x Hoffmannii and the other one is anyones guess..... BUT, it has to
be a cordate leaf. Also,I know that A. x Hoffmannii has to be a hybrid...
because the seedlings are quite variable.
