  Need Monstera ID
From: RAYMOMATTLA at cs.com on 2004.07.19 at 17:19:09(11772)
Can anyone help with the ID on this Monstera? There are some other Monsteras
and Philos on the site that need IDing as well, if anyone has some spare time
to look them over. Thanks and here is the link

Randy,
Could it be Monstera Dobsona?
That is the name that I have on one that I got down at fairchilds sale last
year. looks the same, if I have the right pic on your site.
Just a thought.

Jeff, its the one with pinnately lobed blades. I was thinking perhaps M.
sub-pinnata or M. (pinnapartia)-?. Not sure though. It came from Ecuagenera
and is a very rampant grower. Thanks again,
Michael

Hi Michael

Rather young. Do you have an image of the juvenile stage?

Dear Michael,

It looks like Monstera subpinnata, a south american species easily
distinguished from others pinnatifid species by the pinnae slightly
constricted at the base. It makes a superb inflorescence.

With best regards,

David

hi Michael,

your plant with divided leaves looks like something I'm growing... which I think
is Monstera subpinnata .

... Looking it up in the TROPICOS database (Missouri Botanic Gardens)...it's a
species that's been collected in Peru and Bolivia, and also Ecuador & Brazil
(Acre). Maybe you could have a look under its 'specimen list' for this
species? as some of the (more recent) specimen records have field notes that
describe fine details - e.g. of stem, veins, colour, texture - which you could
compare with your own plant.

(btw. if you haven't used that database before - it's at
http://mobot.mobot.org/W3T/Search/vast.html
It's quite a good resource for nomenclature - for checking names & classification
- & has many habitat pics & herbarium specimen records for aroids collected in C.
& S. America )

cheers
Eugene
