Thank you Tahir Sb. I too forget the 2nd one and was sure you would know. It's leaves are basically very fleshy and break quite easily. They grow out of small bulbs. Flower stalk is white with small white flowers, Leaf color and markings you can see in the badly taken photograph. Oh yes it is quite easy to multiply.

While checking the underside of leaves for mealybugs, a huge problem this time of the year in Karachi, I was surprised to find this large pink Anthurium blooming, hidden under the plant's large leaves. Note the white spadix.
