Dear Eric,

This is probably a young specimen of Philodendron hastatum, a species
from eastern Brazil. The youngsters usually have a silvery color in some
clones. You can check an adult plant at the Lorenzi?s book on Burle-Marx
plants, page 134.

Very best wishes,


Eduardo G. Goncalves

I have this plant, it is quite common out here in Australia too, but I have a
name of P.coerulescens for it. I believe that this is the name Dewey Fisk has
for this plant. Can't confirm the botanical status of this name though.
