Gary,
Is it possible they're Aglaonemas? I know some of their leaves kind of looks like Spathiphyllum. Below is a link to a picture of one of Exotic Angel's varieties that is pink. If not, I'd love to see a photo of those, our HD doesn't have them!

Hi
feel sure they were PL,medium sized variety, were mixed in among the regular whites only the spathe was pink leaves looked quite ordinary. as usual for the box stores had no names lol A lot of dyed flowers have been showing up including orchids , poinsettia, mums though the PL didn't looked dyed.
Was tempted to get one but the check out line was a block long and I was supposed to be there to pick up a toilet kit ,wasn't even supposed to be looking at plants lol.
Have never heard of any color except white for Pl so natually they caught my eye Most of the plants for HD are produced by Costa Color out of Miami but they are wholesale only so don't have much of a catalog.

After the Christmas madness I'll take a camera with me
Want to get a pic of the seeding Bismark palm anyway.
Thanks gary

Gary,
In that case, I'd love to see a photo! Our HDs (we only have two) rarely have anything unique (well, I did find a variegated African Violet the other week... that's a first in about 3 years that I found something unique there). I can't say that our Lowes has those pink PLs.

I know the feeling "not supposed to be looking for plants" I was returning one this morning (which by the way, forgot to bring the plant with me to return it... doh) and found a PL/pothos combo pot on sale for $7.50 (my Mother will gladly take the 'Marble Queen' Pothos). Not that I needed another PL let alone I wasn't supposed to be looking...

Merry Xmas to All,

Hi Toni,

Pls. re-read the opening comment:

"Hi

He opens w/ the idea it might be Anthurium, maybe you missed it?

Sorry Gary, I don't know, nor have I seen it yet.

Hi
Certainly could be an anthurium since there are around a gazillion kinds lol They commonly have red/pink/ white /green/ bicolored spathes .The leaf structure was identical to a PL though. Thought mabe a pink was something I'd missed ?? I have seen varigated leaf forms of Pl but only white for the spathe . Wouldn't rule out dyed as i have seen them with "glitter" particularly at christmas lol Thanks gary

Belated, Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!

Karen, once again, I missed Gary mention of Anthurium. Thanks for the correction.

Gary, there's also a purple flowering Anthurium.
Yep, I notice big-box stores are dying and spraying sprinkles on blooms and leaves. Especially Orchids and Poinsettias.
Some people love dyed plants..oh well... :)

Rachel..both Anthuriums are so very pretty..the second plant looke like it's red flowered??? The first looks pink?
Is it the camera, lighting or are they two diferent colors? Toni

Toni: they were both "in the pink family", but yes the bigger one was more red. I just hope one of the two is close to what Gary saw!

Hi Rachael...Although pink is pretty, red is outstanding. I once had a red-flowered Anthurium potted in a clay pot. Every winter it'd send out beautiful, deep, yet shiny red blooms.

One winter day, our dog knocked it down breaking Anthurium and its container. I repotted in a similiar pot/size, 'not clay,' but it died.

Although I have a few Anthuriums they look nowhere as pretty and healthy as my old, red Anthurium. boohoo. :(

Are you planning on buying one of the two Anthuriums? Assuming you snapped photos at the store.

Gary, when you have time, can you post pics? Toni

Get both..lol.

hi
Yes , That's a trailing anthurium. These were a "baby 'pink much softer than pink anthurium. The leaves and stature of the plant was exactly like a medium spath. There are self heading and upright anthuriums but usually the leaves are longer than the stem. this plant was like a PL except for the color of the spathe.. i've heard from others that there are pale green, cream bicolored and yellow but weren't aware of a pink.. i personally have only seen white though in a stretch they might be called cream. The giant ones in particular.
Wish i'd bought it now !!! I figure somebody i is working on other colors as I write ?? thanks gary
