Anthurium no. 1262 "Reggie"

Not a lot to say about Reggie, so this will be boring. (Sorry.)

Spathes are pretty small, but it's bloomed twice while in a 3-inch pot, and I like the spathe color.

Leaves aren't gorgeous or anything, but they seem to be pretty resistant to thrips, which is a plus.

The overall habit of the plant is not good: the internodes are awfully long, considering how old the plant is and the kind of care it's been getting.

That said, I'm probably going to keep Reggie around for a while, because the color is uncommon and I like it.

There is an actual performer who goes by "Reggie," though this is difficult to search for on-line, and the best I could find was this page, which says that they're a drag king who also goes by "T. Shane LeBeaux,"1 based in New Mexico.


1 The "T." apparently stands for "Thunder."
