Anthuriums alone have so many choices. The Pachyneuriums (Birdnest) have the same overall form but a large difference in the leaves. I know al lot of people like the section Cardiolonchium the best (the 'velvet' anthuriums) and I have a lot of those, but I have pretty much stopped collecting them because, lets face it, they all begin to look similar eventually (clarivervium looks like crystallinum which resembles Ace of Spades and resembles Regale which looks like besseae and on and on). I got into serious hoo ha a couple weeks ago when I 'disrespected' someone's new Anthurium VooDoo Child. All I said was that it seemed a little run of the mill and looked the same as a lot of other anthuriums in the same group. I caught hell from the lady who had hybridized it...of course she thinks its the best thing since sliced bread...but its only real redeeming feature is that its new leaves are initially a very bright red before they harden off to a deep almost black. But a lot of Anthuriums have new red or bronze leaves, and a lot of them are the same dark color. I can understand she is proud of having made the cross...but...if something really special happened like the red leaves STAYED red, not THAT i might pop for the $$ to buy one.
I like all my plants but my fave anthuriums tens to be the palmate ones. Podophyllum, pedatum, pedatoradiatum, polychistum, clavigerum, polydactylon, warsc.....(never can spell it without looking but you know LOL)...I find these infinitely more interesting that a lot of others.
The big thing now is variegated this and that. People are selling stuff like variegated Epipremnum punnatum, var Philo billitae (sp), anything that pops up variegated, for huge bucks to millennials who are fueling this houseplant movement mainly around aroids. I have seen a tiny plant go for $600 and the buyer not blink an eye. Just drool and ask when it can be shipped. Its Crazy. And a lot of these sellers aren'e even growing...they are just importing from Asia and reselling
