> Subject: [Aroid-l] Philodendron stenolobum splitting into 2 heads ..
Just a quick note--this plant seems a little immature for this split, but splitting at the meristem is in fact seemingly fairly common in Meconostigmas (and other Philodendrons and aroids in general), I have seen it several times in several species, and at the time did not really take note of it as being anything especially notable or ''strange''.

But what got my attention , while I was trimming of some of the older leaves, was the fact that the meristem had split into two . This plant is only a few years old , and one of my own seedlings . It has been planted out for approx 2 years and has maybe 30 cms of stem. It will be a few months before both of the new leaves will open up and mature to be certain both new stems will thrive . This is not a common occurence I think .
