|These 2 photos were taken half a year later.|
|The petioles are quadriangular in cross-section, and slightly winged|
what makes it different from a similar species A. crystallinum, which has round petioles.

|New leaves are brown, small and shiny. Like other species of Anthurium they grow after unfolding.|
|The underside of the leaves is pale green.||The geniculum.|
