  Philodendron hybrid names .
From: mickpascall at hotmail.com (Michael Pascall) on 2007.12.12 at 17:23:56(16809)
I recently found some of Keith Hendersons fantastic hybrid Philo.
gloriosum x andreanum [ correctly melanochrysum] .
I know this plant is in Hawaii and most likely in some collections on the mainland .
Has anyone seen it with a cultivar name ?
Did Keith ever name it ? Is he still around ? I know , so many questions .

I also have a very atractive Philo. that looks a little like P.gigas
Has some red reverse to the leaf , and can get very large .
Will put a few pics onto the ID site later tonight .
A few people in the US are already after me for some .

I would be very forthright in stating my interest in this plant, cough, cough.

Keith Henderson is still around for sure. He lives in Australia as before. You could write to Keith and ask him.

The pictures of the Philo I want Id'd will not be put up onto the ID site until next year .So I compressed them a little and will add to this email .
I nearly convinced myself it was P.gigas as Tom had sent a cutting of it to Whyanbeel Arboretum .
Peter Sargent assures me that it did not survive the quarantine . Michael Pascall,

Dear Michael:

I just looked at these images. It looks like there is some
kind of indumentum on the petioles. Is that true. I don't think that P.
gigas has any such indumentum.
