  Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron with largest leaves?

Zach,
I am referring to this message to this group some time ago that I copied and pasted below:
Thanks for your insights - I have several of these and can't wait for some hugeness.

Dylan: It is essentially obligatory if you except Thaumatophyllum. Mike Grayum will not go along with the change and since he is the authority and is still finishing his revision of Pteromischum it will be awkward for others to do so when the world=E2=80=99s authority on the group does not go along. I suspect that he will just go on calling them a section of Philodendron.

I don't think anyone=C2=A0has suggested that the move is not fully supported. Someone may have said something to the effect of many people don't know about the move and are still using the former names. Here is the journal article recognizing the genus Thaumatophyllum: https://phytokeys.pensoft.net/articles.php?id=3D25044

I believe the largest Thaumatophyllum leaves are probably bipinnatifidum and speciosum. One source I found online just now mentioned bipinnatifidum leaves measuring as long as 120 cm.

Another Philodendron that can produce very large leaves is Philodendron warszewiczii.

Good luck on your quest to find the largest,

Zach

Zach,
Somebody recently indicated in this group that the move to Thaumatophyllum isn't fully supported - so I apologize for any confusion. I would mean to include Thaumatophyllum within my question. Is there one larger than P. giganteum?
Best, Jude

I would guess that is was previously one of the species that has been moved to the genus Thaumatophyllum. I'm not sure what the next largest leaved Philodendron would be. Perhaps the aptly named Philodendron giganteum?

Has it ever been determined which has the title of largest-leaf Philodendron?
Hope everyone is O K! Been silent lately.
