Hi Tsuh Yang,
I have two forms of P. williamsii, is there also a
williamsonii? If williamsii is what you are
interested in, I would be happy to photograph both of
my williamsii which are still young. The largest of
the two has leaves about nine inches long. (I used
to have one that was older, that I had for years and
somehow I killed it - it had leaves that were fifteen
or sixteen inches long).
Many years ago I had a P. burle-marx fantasy. Or,
that was what it was called in the seventies. It was
beautiful but VERY hard to grow. It was a vining, icy
blue-green leaf with a myriad of dark veins. I got it
from Alberts and Merkel company which is in Boynton
Beach Florida and is still in existance. I hope this
helped, and let me know about the photos.

So, was it a good "trip", or a bad "trip"?

Dear StellrJ,
I am an artist, I went to art school in the seventies.
My whole life has been a long, strange, trip.
Didn't Jerry Garcia say that??

Dear Tsuh Yang,

Philodendron burle-marxii is a hard to find species that grows in the
Brazilian states of Amazonas and Acre. I have found it in Acre and it is a
nice plant, with strap-like leaves. There is also a very well-grown plant in
Burle-Marx collection at Rio de Janeiro. I haven?t seen it growing anywhere
