I've had this plant at least 5 years, has never bloomed, survives neglect for years on end.
Any spots on the leaves are dust/rain.

I'm sure Julius will chime in onthis one but the plant looks exactly like the specimen I have of Philodendronxanadu Croat, Mayo and Boos that was used in the original researchfor the publication of the species. Julius gave it to me two years agoat the IAS show in Miami.

I have one almost identical and the tag says Philodendron 'Xanadu', so who knows what it really is!

Hello Susan,

For me it is Ph. xanadu with a little deeper cut leaves.

Growing in full Sun it may look so...

or it can be Ph. xanadu crossed with another Meconostigma Philo

like Ph. radiatum or Ph. pinnatifidum, but I've never heard of such a cross,

so I bet on xanadu.

Dear Susan,

This certainly looks like P. xanadu.
With more light, heat, fert. and re-potting, it would/should eventually develop and exibit the larger leaf blade rear lobes, etc. AND possibly bloom, as I explained in my last paper on this species.
Good Growing.
