There definitely are variegated cultivars of the Philodendron self
heading type you called "selloum". This is not a valid name and has been
reduced to synonomy under Philodendron bipinnatifidum. Certainly Graf's
Exotica shows some, but like you I have never seen one in the flesh out
here in Australia. I really want one too! Thought you would have been able
to find some in Florida.

Hello! While on a tip to California went to Dave Gordon's house. He had a
yellow spotted Philodendron selloum. It was not the best variegation but it
did have some discoloring in the leafs. He wanted an unbelievable about of
money for a cutting over a 1000.00 I believe. That is the only one I have
ever heard of or have seen. Would love to know if their are others?

Hi everybody,
I have been looking for a varigated P. selloum for a long time and actually
have never seen
one here in South Africa. If you find some count me in please.
Best Regards

We quite often have Philodendrons Cultivars from tissue culture that
sport out and become variegated to one degree or other. However,
personally I do not grow P. bipinnatifidum and have not seen any sports
of that species. I shall ask around to some of the other nurseries and
see if anyone who grows large quantites of this plant has come accross
any variegated forms of this one.
I don't know of anyone who is growing large quantities of the
Arborescent Type Philos. Don't hold your breathe waiting for a positive
