Mr. yellow is probably neon pothos, and the other is a bloomin' anthurium... I can't wait to see what color your spathes are. So far I have a white one (my son broke it before I could see it develop). I also have one that I haven't seen bloom. They are so, so, so slow when you are waiting for it. It's like watching for water to boil. It's putting on lots of leaves. Lots. But no flower yet, whaaaaaaa.

Post #7333569

Well, looky at the base of the plant. If it has multiple growths, you can just divide it. Some only have one growth point, but should eventually branch off. I have also seen them grow pretty tall, and they root up the stem, to where you could whack a cutting, but I wouldn't until the new wears off. It's a pretty plant, so just enjoy it unless a division is just screaming at you :).

I've got one of those "rudolf the red nosed reign deere Philodendron" plants, minus the eyes and nose of course. Was on the property when I bought it. In a very bad place (hot sun and no water) and only ever one or two leaves, but a long stem. Just recently I finally got around to moving it to a better site so hopefully it'll grow a lot better. Don't know its name though.

I grew monstera deliciosa from seed. I was so excited about it :). Miss trina, you get the green and red flowered anthurium if the person offering it was serious. I'll try to find p. squamiferum as cheap as I can, and we can trade later. That way we don't blow money for the same plants :).

Hi girls,

Oh, no one can have an imagination more, well, complex, than mine is! For a glimpse, check the following link:

http://www.aroidia.com/aroidia1.htm

I'm not only working on blending the silverveined Anthuriums with the colored bloom types, but I'm adding perfumy fragrance as well. Patience pays; speed kills! Oh, and did I mention that I have a penchant for gigantic plants? They are in the works as well, but could be a few years off, unless I get lucky!! Can you imagine an Anthurium with 3 foot leaves and giant red blooms? I can see it in my mind already. . .

BTW, I can get an aroid to go from seed to blooming in about a year, a skill required in my line of work . . .

3jsmom3 and I were joking about leaves that big but blooms with all the colors! I can't wait until spring either cause I have fallen in love with you're hybrids but as we have an ice storm right now I don't dare take the risk...cause i'd cry...besides that way I can save for a little shopping at aroidia...LOL like I NEED more plants
