According to exotic rainforest.com ...
small creeping aroid from Southeastern Brazil and parts of Ecuador, Anthurium radicans is the only member of section Chamaerepium. Described to science in 1854, many non-scientific sources state Anthurium radicans is only found in Brazil. However, Dr. Tom Croat of the Missouri Botanical Garden has collected the species in the vicinity of Serrania de Cutucu in Ecuador. Anthurium radicans is noted as one of the smallest creeping Anthurium species with both cordate and bullate leaf blades. A cordate blade is one that is heart shaped and bullate leaves are ones that appear blistered or puckered. Collectors often call the leaves of such species "quilted". The largest blade on our specimen measures approximately 14cm (5.5 inches).
This plant measures approx 10cm in width and 8cm in height from soil level.
