  Philodendron ID confinmation needed
From: "Marek Argent" <abri1973 at wp.pl> on 2011.01.12 at 13:05:45(21727)

Dear Friends,

I got photos of two Philodendron spp. from an aroider from Australia

One plant is 028, 029, 030 - can it be Ph. goeldii?

Second one 038, 039, 040 - a juvenile Ph. radiatum or rathet Ph. xanadu or?

Please help,

Marek Argent

The first ones look like syngonium sp.

Hello Marek,

Pictures 28-29-30 is a Syngonium species, probably Syngonium auritum ...

Pictures 38-39-40 could indeed represent Philodendron radiatum (elongate internodes exclude P. xanadu).

With best regards,

Dear Marek,

It’s not Philodendron goeldii . It’s a Syngonium ?

The best ,

Looks like Syngonium auritum. An easy way to tell is to tear a leaf - the sap of Syngonium is milky whereas the sap od almost all Philodendrons, and certainly those with compound leaf blades, is clear, resionius and aromatic.
