Anthurium has a personal sentiment, tinged with sadness. Mum used to grow this plant. No matter how she nursed it, it was to no avail. The plant would not give her the pleasure of blooming a single bloom. She refused to give it up.

 Mum died prematurely in an accident. Every time I see a giant Anthurium flower here in Auckland New Zealand, and there are plenty here especially in the Winter garden greenhouse at the Domain, I think of Mum and want to ask the plant why it denied Mum even of one tiny flower.

That is spectacular. It doesn't even look real!

I like that it reminds you of your Mom. :)

A sad memory, Ann. May you be well and remember your mother with love.
