Philodendron ID

Postby gottabeme22002 » Thu Aug 11, 2011 5:23 pm

Might anyone have a guess on this Philodendron? It has never bloomed for me. The leaves stay this same basic shape and never get larger than 8 or 9 inches in length, even growing several feet up a pole.

Dear Jason and Leslie,
Aloha.
Even so called Philodendron experts have trouble with identifications. Philodendron is a very large genus. I chose to study Philodendron subgenus Meconostigma, because it is a small group. Unfortunately, I cannot identify Leslie's plant from just the vegetative, sterile, photo. Some of these types of Philodendron change morphology over time and with higher light levels. The other issue is that many more hybrids are showing up.

Leslie, have you shown this photo to Russ? He may know and grow this plant.

Aloha,

Leland

Russ does have this plant. He doesn't know what it is either.

That looks a lot like a mature P. camposportoanum in your photo. Maybe not, but that is very similar.

I have gotten more mature leaves from this plant as it has grown up (literally..clinging to a big Anthurium clavigerum). Leland has helped ID this plant as Philodendron 'Ecuador'.

Thanks!

Hello Leslie,

I think this is Philodendron bipennifolium. It has not yet completely developped the typical side-lobes but you can guess their presence. It can certainly grow and climb without producing the more lobed leaves for years. And I agree with you Michael's picture probably show P. camposportoanum.

With best regards,

David

There are striking similarities between the most recent leaf and P. bipennifolium. I will let it keep going upwards.

Thank you!!
