Anthurium 'Black Diamond'

Base Species or Cultivar:
The cultivar originated from a mis-identified anthurium from Indonesia
These anthuriums were grown from seed from a self-pollinated NOID mother plant. Newly emerging leaves range in coloration, from bronzy copper to nearly black. I call it Anthurium Black Diamond because, while the hardened-off leaves remain consistent among siblings, we never know what color or tint the leaf will be when emerging. We are looking to officially register this name to give these private-grown anthuriums a proper identity as we share them with other passionate anthurium growers.
Semi compact. Petioles erect spreading
Emerging colors range from florescent black to a copper. Mature leaves dark green nearly black. Little venation. Green underside
Bloom and Fruit:
Spadix arched, heavily tinged green - red; spathe moderately thin, green tinged
leaf shape bears closer resemblance to Ace of Spades, though more rounded at the apex; closed sinus creates an almost oval shape
