  Help to determine a Philodendron
From: Franck fradnai at free.fr> on 2006.03.29 at 16:33:24(14002)
In more of my first message I add some pictures of the philo (philo01 to
03) and one more (2philo01) because I think that it is also a philo. The
two plants come from French Guyane.
Thanks a lot for your help.

I think the first photo is Philodendron insigne, if you want I may post
these photos in the Aroid ID Center.

I don't know how relevant this would be to most members, but in a rural area
with a very expensive Starband satellite system being the only high -speed
internet service available, embedding large photos in email causes major
problems and it would be best that you post large photos in the IAS I.D.
center. Maybe post photos in the I.D. center with a text announcement on
the mailing list? I have to leave Outlook running all night to clear my
mail and then once someone replies to an email with a large embedded image
problems starts all over again. If anyone knows a way make this more
manageable without interfering with my business mail, I would appreciate the

The second Philodendron is possibly P.billietiae but it appear to be
growing in deep shade so it is not showing much color on the petioles or
stem. We grew quite a few of these for the IAS Auction from cuttings
form French Guiana.

Very sorry Steve for this problem. I will use the IAS ID in future if I
need it and I will post an announcement on the mailing list. Very sorry
one mote time.

Hello Denis,
You are the second person to tell me that it could be billietiae and I
will must be abble to compare it with an other one near my home (I
didn't know it before yesterday, before Genevieve contact me directly).
The plant grow in good conditions seen the growh but the numeric
material that I have used has a big flash and I have not retook the
picture before sending, only about size (and no more for this last).
The plant has been taken on a tree which was cutted in French Guiana
before to pass in fire ! The conditions of light where the plant grow
is near of the quantity of light which arrives under the trees of
forest, but the temperature is a little lower... but this must be
changed in the months to come (I have changed of house and not the time
to reinstall all the material !). So I note the name because I think
that it will be the good one.
Thanks for your help

Dear Franck,

I think that the first pictured plant is most probably Philodendron
linnaei, not P. insigne as it is not possible to distinguish obvious
primary lateral veins ... the second one is indeed P. billietiae, which
is rather variable, the form with very narrow blades usually found in
cultivation (probably more attractive ?) and indeed the petioles are
usually very orange when grown in full sun ...

With best regards,

Thanks a lot David, all the answers give the same name so now I know my
plants. It is a good new for me.
Thanks a lot to all
