Description and Key Features:

Anthurium regale is one of the key species to collect for its silvery coloured veins. The leaves measure 35-100 cm and resemble Anthurium besseae based on the upper surface veining and velvety leaf texture. Anthurium regale differs from Anthurium besseae as the former’s leaves are bigger and its basal veins fuse together into the basal midrib. In Anthurium besseae, they are free to the base.
