  P. stenolobum/Steve Lucas.

Dear Steve (Lucas),

I hope this info will tell you 'everything (or at least most of) what you
need to know about P. stenolobum, and now have asked'!
Please allow me to act once again as THE 'shill' for the IAS. All of our
active members would have received a copy of Aroideana vol. 25 0f 2002,
where my friend Dr. Eduardo Goncalves and Emerson Salviani, both of Brazil,
have published a MAGNIFICENT work on all the species of 'tree' or
self-heading Philodendron species, illustrated ( ! ) with both wonderful
photos AND Eduardo`s expertly self-rendered line drawings, AND a key to all
species!!! Pg. 2--"New Species and Changing Concepts of Philodendron
subgenus Meconostigma. (Araceae).
Just for your information, and till you can join the IAS and hopefully
purchase a back-issue of this invaluable Aroideana ( ALL back issues are
priceless!), what has been described as a new species from S. W. Brazil,
namely P. stenolobum, USED to be called P. williamsii in the hobby. To add
to our 'fun', the TRUE P. williamsii DOES (or did) exist in the N. E.
Atlantic forest, some remanents of which still survive surrounded by cow
pastures. To add to our "luck', just last year our mentor Dr. Thomas Croat
very kindly distributed just a couple of plants of TRUE P. williamsii that
were expertly grown at MOBOT from wild-collected seed sent to him from
Brazil! Somewhere in my files I have photos taken of one of these juv.
plants kindly taken by my good friend Barry Scwartz, maybe Barry will bring
photos of this plant as it grows to an aduly to the Sept. show in Miami??
True P. williamsii is not as striking a plant as the 'desirable' form of
true P. stenolobum, the one w/ wavy leaf margins that can be up to 90 cm
long by 40 cm wide, P. williamsii has shorter, broader leaves.
To see some of THE best examples of these rare plants, come to Sept`s show
in Miami, Ron Weeks usually shows many of THE best speciemens of MANY Philos
and other Aroids that I have seen.
I hope the above both provides the information that you were looking for,
and may encourage both yourself AND others to FINALLY put up the $25.00 to
become a member of our beloved IAS!

Good Growing!

Julius
