Another Anthurium photographed from California
Has nearly obovate orange red spathes. Please help in ID

Wonderful Photograph of Anthurium most probably A. andraeanum

KEY can be found at http://www.aroid.org/genera/anthurium/keyc.php; pages ‘Key C’  to ‘Key D(b)’ deal with species having cordate leaves. Perhaps the most important info can be found at the end of http://www.aroid.org/TAP/species/anthandrea.php.
Since Anthurium scherzerianum Schott does not have cordate leaves all these plants with strikingly coloured spathe seems to be hybrid of A. andreanum Linden.

Thought of sharing this old photo of Anthurium andraeanum with unusual spike (resembling fingers).

Really unusual

Very unusual !! looks like someone calling by fingers !!!!

What could be the reason for this unusual growth?

May be genetic or may not be, just a odd growth !!

Such hypertrophies are sometimes also caused by infections/infestations.

Duars : Anthurium sp. : 3 posts by 2 authors.
Some of my colleagues recently had a short trip in Duars and they have recorded some flowers & cacti., likely to be ornamentals.
Here is one which could be what is identified as Anthurium andraeanum (Hort.), in http://sta.uwi.edu/anthurium/taxonomy_biology.asp, assuming it’s a hybrid ornamental.
I fail to provide you the exact date, for the camera was not set. It was 1st week of this month.

A couple of days ago I have received ID confirmation from … for this plant.
