  unknown Philodendron, help ID
From: Eric Schmidt leu242 at yahoo.com> on 2006.10.12 at 14:12:45(14733)
Anyone know what this Philodendron might be? It
appears to be a climber, the leaves are over a foot in
length and have neat coloration on the undersides.
Thanks for any help in determining what it is.

Eric, I think this is the same Philo that was discussed here some months
ago. I believe it's a hybrid called 'Big Red' or something similar.
Someone in south Fla posted a photo of a very large group in the ground.
They will probably post here with more info. I have this Philo,
altho my leaves are a bit more narrow than those in the photo.

It is a philodendron that I just call 'Red Hybrid'. You will sometimes see
it listed in the trade as 'Weeks Red Hybrid' or 'Weeks Hybrid'. Monroe
Birdsey gave me the plant years ago. He said it was a hybrid but did not
recall where he got it from.

The plant is a very compact climber. With a very thick stem and very short
internodes it can grow without support. The marbled red color on the back
of the leaf fades as the leaves age. Total spread can be over 8 feet. It
does not like direct sun. It has shown no cold damage to short durations
of 28 degrees F.
