This black spathed anthurium is not an A. watermaliense.
The spathe is too broad and the spadix is curved in a relaxed sort of way.
This is perhaps the famous 'Black Anthurium', a member of the Calomystrium Group with the andraeanum types.
It originates high in the cloud forests of the Andes Mountains in Colombia
and does not do well in sub tropical & tropical sea level environments.
It will hybridize with other Calomystrium types if you can get it to grow in your greenhouse and flower.
