Peter,
That's quite a laundry list for a plant! Thank you for sharing.
And Taylor has just offered that this isn't even an Amydrium after all. Life sure
would be much more boring without aroids on so many different levels huh?
Thanks, Jude

There are several synonyms for this species (see below) which gives some indication that in the wild variation is sufficient to have at least in the past persuaded botanists to publish novelties.

Amydrium magnificum (Engl.) Nicolson

Epipremnum asperatum Engl.

Epipremnum elmerianum Engl.

Epipremnum luzonense K.Krause

Epipremnum mampuanum Alderw.

Epipremnum miniatum Elmer

Epipremnum philippinense Engl. & K.Krause

Epipremnum sorsogonense Elmer ex Merr.

Rhaphidophora warburgii Engl.

Interesting - never knew this - I'm really digging the two different forms.

Thank you, Peter. I appreciate it.

Jude,

There are a few different morphological expressions of Amydrium zippelianum other than the long slender one with which most people are familiar.

I know Amydrium zipp to have long, slender leaves, and was very surprised to receive a plant from Tropiflora that had fat / wide / broad leaves. The stem is clearly from older growth, but the leaves are so different.

Any insights? Two forms? Something else?

Included is a picture of the plant from Tropiflora. (Now that I recall, maybe 5 or 6 years ago, I had bought one from Tropiflora, which had the usual skinny leaves.)

Best, Jude
