My guess is Anthurium … could be hookeri or crassinervium or I could be far from the ID. Please help. The spadix is about 1.5 feet; the large leaf could be about 3 feet long. Will visit the garden once again to get more pictures. Hope this single picture helps in recognizing the ornamental plant.  

I have a similar Anthurium posted from Sri Lanka.
Not too sure of the Species.



… more pictures of same plant on a different date …

Anthurium ¿ hookeri ? / ¿ crassinervium ?  

The gardener has given me the ID: Anthurium schlechtendalii Kunth

I find it convincing.

Pl. also check images and details at Anthurium plowmanii Croat

Thanks …, Posted plant has some similarity to that of Anthurium plowmanii but surely looks quite similar to Anthurium schlechtendalii too – which incidentally is from garden’s checklist.

Let me know you see any aspect particular to Anthurium plowmanii.



Sri Lanka : Arum for ID : 070111 : AK-2

I think Anthurium plowmanii Croat 

Thanks … It does look similar.

Posted on our group earlier.
Very long leaves, atleast three feet, may be longer.
Suggested id by …
Anthurium plowmanii Croat.

Could be Anthurium schlechtendalii?
Thanks … It does look similar.


Araceae for ID :: Karjat, MH :: ARKAPR-01 : 7 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (6)
Saw this ornamental Araceceae in a nursery in Karjat, MH in Dec 2014.
Looks like Xanthasoma sagittifolium. Requested to validate ID.

To me it looks different from images at Xanthosoma sagittifolium
Pl. check comparative images at Araceae

Not too sure.
But it is very close to Anthurium plowmanii Croat, suggested by …, that I had earlier posted from Sri Lanka.

Anthurium hookeri

To me also it appear close to images of Anthurium plowmanii at
As per Anthurium hookeri link: “Many websites and sellers sell their hybrid specimens as “Anthurium hookerii” (with two i’s) which is not a correct scientific spelling.  There are also firms that sell a plant they call “Anthurium hookeri Ruffles”.  Scientifically, there is no such species and the common name Anthurium Ruffles is more frequently applied Anthurium plowmaniiAnthurium plowmanii commonly has ruffled edges but is not closely related to Anthurium hookeri.  The two species are found thousands of miles apart in nature.  There is another tissue cultured plant sold as Anthurium hookeri Marie which is a hybrid and does not appear to be related to Anthurium hookeri. ”
