  Philodendron ID.
From: "John Criswick" <criswick at spiceisle.com> on 2014.01.04 at 09:17:48(22959)

This philodendron is quite often seen cultivated as a pot plant in Grenada. The specimen in the attached photo is juvenile. After this stage it does not alter in form but merely gets bigger. I have not seen any more than 60cm (2 ft) across but I have only seen potted specimens.

Does anyone know what species it is?

John.

Dear John,
To me it looks like a juvenile Philodendron pinnatifidum. Have you checked this species?

Very best wishes,

Eduardo.

Dear John: I recall a cultivar that was called “pluto” some years back that was similar to your plant.

Dear Tom,

Yes I do recall Pluto and have grown it, but it is quite different, in fact I think it had burgundy colouring.

A friend now writes to say that she thinks she has “my” philodendron and acquired it in both Brazil and Ecuador.

Dear Eduardo,

You may very well be right, as the same thought has occurred to me. I have both plants and we will only have to wait and see if you are right.

John.
