Anthurium no. 0760 "Delta Work"

Another pretty bad seedling. Waiting to see how the second bloom turns out, but the first was kind of a mess:

Small, thrips-scarred, burnt margins, and the spathe flips back early too.

Stretching to find something positive: it's hard to tell what color the spadix was aiming for, but it's conceivable that the color combination would have been interesting. Doubtful, sure. But not entirely unimaginable. And there's at least a lot of suckering? I guess?

Though the internodal distance is big, which kind of cancels out the suckering. As mentioned in one of the footnotes in the post for 0698 Landon Cider, it's possible that I should have known this would be the case for the seedlings from 0108 Deena Sequins. About the best I can come up with for Delta is that the thrips damage on the leaves is minimal.

I'm going to give her a chance to put up a second bloom, if only to see what color the spadix is trying to be. One is already in progress, so that shouldn't take too long. And then I'll probably throw her in the garbage anyway.

Delta has a prettier sister, who you'll get to meet in a few days.
