Anthurium tremulum

Very eye-catching and dramatic, rarely encountered in collections, Anthurium tremulum Sodiro belongs to section Section Belolonchium. Petiole equalling or overtopping blade, erect, rigid, subcylindrical, short-sheathed at the base, incidentally or scarcely antrorsely sulcate,  blades cartilaginous, shiny, green, paler below,  ovate at the base, deeply cordate, narrowed gradually upward into the long-cuspidate apex.


The genus name Anthurium is derived from Greek ánthos "flower" + ourá "tail" + New Latin -ium -ium . A very  literal translation of this would be 'flowering tail'.
