it must be, but with what? i haven't seen any pink veining like that before.
do you see red juvie leaves on the bottom and red petioles - it's another pot, but same type of plant. just like philo erubescence hybrids. suppose you can cross philo with anthurium?

I think it would take a miracle worker to cross a Philo with an Anthurium.

Several possibilities with the above plant...

Anthurium crystallinum, new leaves are dark pink/red/marroon as well as petioles.

Here's a pic of a new leaf on mine. They gradually lose the pinkish cast.


and a mature leaf.

Other possible is A. clarinervium They are very similar but clarinervium is supposed to be "sparklier" and more pronounced venation.
I don't have any pics right now BUT.. Green Grin! .as luck would have it I should be able to get a few later on today as the trade ( that you so kindly pointed me too Green Grin! Green Grin! Thumbs up ) should be arriving today. Supposed to be several with one being a bit larger so I might be able to get some comparison photos.

i was wondering about that - a.clarinervium seems to have more 'rounded ears' and is rounder in shape compared with a.crystallinum. but fresh young leaves look quite similar.
on my pic - the pink veining is only on fresh young leaf. and the plant itself is not large.
and before you ask - it's in 'private greenhouse', not for sale... yet. but l'll be on the look out next time. Smiling

It very well could be a hybrid. There's a lot of them out there and alot of them look very much alike, especially while they are "smaller".
