Hi Enid,

All I can tell you is that it is Philodendron saxicola. and not saxicolum. -cola, the noun to dwell is here used in apposition (i.e., as an adjective) and doesn't agree with the gender of the genus. The same is true for Arum rupicola, Anthurium amnicola, etc.

Hi Enid, Michael Ferrero says that P. saxicola/um is not
in the US as far as he is aware. The nearest thing to it
is P. adiamantinum at Marie Selby Gardens. John.

Dear Enid,

Aloha.

What sort of information are you looking for on Philodendron saxicola? It has been determined by Dr. Simon Mayo, formerly of KEW, that the correct name according to the rules, is, Philodendron saxicola. I have habitat and cultural information....but, are you looking for something specific? There are also two basic forms, one that is glaucous, and one that is green without the wax that creates the blue cast.

Aloha,

Leland

Dear All,

Aloha.

Airlan's website, Meconostigma, is really good for basic information on this Philodendron subgenus. Google to it. There are images, descriptions, stories, etc. Very helpful.

Aloha,

Leland

Dear Peter,

Aloha.

Are there easy rules to determine gender in a name?

Aloha,

Leland

Dear Leland,

The easiest is the –um ending, which is neuter; masculine end in –us; feminine end in –a. But beware there are pitfalls. The best-know are the so-called ‘Roman Trees’ – which are treated as feminine (as Romans did) but whose names don’t ‘agree’ – thus Quercus, Laurus, Fraxinus, Juniperus, Arbutus, etc.
