Anthurium scherzerianum 'Rustica'

This is a dwarf cultivar, no more than 25 cm tall, with big spathes, about 10 cm.

The spathe's colour is dark red.
The leaves are very stiff.
The geniculum is slightly red-tinted,
what I haven't seen in other cultivars.
A comparison with the typical form of A. scherzerianum
2 years later it was not so compact,
about 35 cm tall with 20 cm leaf blades.
The geniculum had no red colour.
