Product information "Anthurium gymnopus 'Purple'"
Name: Anthurium gymnopus, Griseb. 1866

not known


gymnopus = naked column foot
Leon (1946) gave this plant the common name "bejuco lombricero de cana" ("worm vine of Sabal"). The name is not derived from the snake-like growth form, but from its medicinal use in the treatment of intestinal parasites. The plant is said to have a worm-killing effect.
(It is an ornamental plant that is not suitable for consumption).

Propagation: divisions
Origin: Cuba

Climbing or hemiiphytic at sea level along Cuba's southern coasts, rarely on the north coast in warm locations, little humidity during the day.


Scott Zona, Fairchild Botanical Garden: "West of Havana, near the town of Candelaria, in the province of Pinar del Rio, Anthurium gyrnnopus Griseb. is found, a curious and rarely seen species endemic to western Cuba."
""Anthurium gymnopus grows epiphytically between the leaf bases in the crown area of the palm. Anthurium gymnopus is a climbing species with long internodes and a stem about 1 cm in diameter. The leaves of Anthurium gymnopus are tough, almost rubbery, and the plant twines around the crown and is apparently well adapted to its windy, light-rich home'
The Anthurium gymnopus 'Purple' offered here is clearly different from this type in growth habit, see picture #3 of the plant.
