Anthurium no. 0363 "Diego El Sabroso"

Diego's first bloom is, so far, also his only bloom, but it was okay:

The bloom color, frequency, and size are all average at best, but he does seem to be more resistant to thrips attack than most.

Not sure if thrips resistance is enough on its own to justify keeping the plant around, especially since there are plants from the same sibling group that are just as resistant and have nicer blooms,1 but I'm willing to keep him around for a little while longer to see if anything interesting happens.


1 Specifically 0357 Rhea Litré, 0360 Heidi Gosique, and 0380 Ewan Watarmi, all of which are far superior.

Nice rich red, in any event -- though a larger bloom would be nice.
