Abstract
Insecticides and acaricides are commonly used on anthurium (Anthurium andraeanum Andre) to produce marketable flowers. A limiting factor in using certain insecticides and acaricides on anthurium is phytotoxicity, or plant injuries resulting from pesticide applications. Phytotoxic responses differ among anthurium cultivars; an insecticide that is safe on one cultivar may not be safe on another. The purpose of this study was to test certain registered and experimental insecticides and acaricides for phytotoxicity to anthuriums.
