I saw this fantastic plant with curling pistils at the Mt. Holyoke College greenhouse in Massachusetts. There was no ID marker. Can anyone tell me the name?
Also, can anyone tell me the humidity levels this plant likes?

Looks like Anthurium scherzerianum. Anthuriums like high humudity and a well-drained soil mix.

This species can be grown as a house plant, however. I had one years.
