Within our collection we have many species of Anthurium. If you are seeking other photos, click this link:
Anthurium argyrostchyum is found in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. The
species is noted as a member of section Polyneurium. An epiphyte
has been published regarding this species. Although there was some concern
among other collectors our specimen might possibly be something undescribed,
after reviewing photos of both our specimen as well as the base of the
plant, aroid botanist Dr. Tom Croat of the Missouri Botanical Garden responded with this
comment, "This looks like Anthurium
argyrostachyum Sodiro to me."
Described to science in 1901.
Anthurium species are known to be highly variable and not every leaf of every specimen will always appear the same. This link explains in greater detail the scientific principle of natural variation and morphogenesis. Click here.
