Anthurium pallidiflorum Update
Back in May I received some Anthurium pallidiflorum seeds. Like many aroids, the seeds are contained in fruit, and need to stay damp in order to germinate. I quickly washed them and planted them in Sphagnum moss. They’ve been growing slowly for the past few months. A few weeks ago I took a risk and moved them to separate containers.
This is the largest of the seedlings in his new wood basket. His largest leaf is only the size of a dime. He’s still in Sphagnum, but he’s been upgraded to a Cedar basket. In nature, Anthurium are epiphytes. The wood basket and moss he’s growing in here mimics the environment where seeds like this grow. Eventually, hopefully, I’ll hang him so his long, thin leaves can cascade down.
