  Philo. sps. seeds, S. Amer. Co.
From: "Julius Boos" <ju-bo at msn.com> on 2007.05.04 at 09:20:29(15625)
Dear Friends,

Below is a note and appeal from one of our serious researchers who used the
seeds sent up to him by the S.A American Co. a few years ago.
As we have been discussing, MANY of these seeed MUST have been mislabled by
the Company that sold them, as the "self-heading" Philodendron sps. which
belong to the special group Meconostigma seem to have all grown out to be
Philo. bipinnatifidium ("selloum" in the commercial U.S. trade).
As Vic says, he shared some seed from each packet with a grower, so what I
am trying to determine is exactly WHO these people were, and if any of the
seed labled with the names Vic gives (below) germinated and grew, and what
the plants from a labeled packet might have turned out to be. Several
Philodendrons on the list given by Vic are vine-types (not 'self-heading'),
and I know that at least a few grew to be vines, but who knows their true
I know at this stage that we are probably trying to make 'chicken soup out
of BAD chicken poop', but let`s see if anyone can add some information and
so help Vic with his research.

The Best,

Good Growing,
