  Philodendron ID help
From: "Sherry Gates" <TheTropix at msn.com> on 2009.10.22 at 10:44:52(20202)

Hi everyone,

Hope everybody's doing great. I have this plant, which I bought a few years ago from NSExotics. For some reason, my e-mail refuses to send anything to their e-mail address. I don't recall it having a name, other than maybe Thai hybrid ( ?). Do any of y'all have any idea of the name of this Philodendron? I don't have a picture of an inflorescense so far. The leaf in the picture is 19in. (48.3 cm) long x 9 in. (22.9 cm) wide. It's a great plant and I'd sure love to know its' name.

Thanks and hope someone knows,

Take care everyone, Sherry

Sherry, there are a number ofhybrids including some found in nature that looks like this. This oneappears to be the one often sold as "Philodendron Ecuador" but I can'tbe positive. I have been given cuttings of at least three that arevery similar and all had Philodendron bipennifolium as one ofthe parents.
