I have done the araceae of the Kampong and have a powerpoint with most of the
species. I seem to remember that I have a Raphidophora montanum there. I
am curious what name you put on this plant. If Michael does not have
images I can send them.

When juvenile the leaves of
giganteum are often rippled in this manner. Once it is
larger, the leaves tend to be smooth.
Monsteroid climbers, even in
different genera, often look rather similar so I would need to see a
photograph of the plant in the Kampong in order to have a chance of id-ing
zippellanum is the same as A.
magnificum; this is VERY distinctive and if the plant
in the Kampong looks like E. giganteum then it is
certainly NOT A.
If you can send me an image I
will have a go at naming.

[Aroid-l] Is this a Epipremnum?
beauty!Peter, is it common/normal for Epipremnum giganteum to have
these rippled or wavy leaves as seen in Calvin's picture? Its too far
to tell, but there is a plant growing at the Kampong in Miami that
looks very close to it, but doesnt have this characteristic. I believe
it is labeled Rhodospatha venosum but I may be wrong....it doesnt look too
much like that species from pics Ive seen. I have also heard that it
was Amyrdium magnificum....but isnt this an old name for Amydrium
zippelianum....which the plant is question is definately not!I think you
also mention in one of your articles in a relatively recent Aroideana that
E. giganteaum can be seen occasionally in collections in South Florida? Perhaps this is the mystery
climber at the Kampong?Thanks,Michael
