  Re: [aroid-l] Selloum/Bipinnatifidum
From: Susan snalice at dslextreme.com> on 2003.05.08 at 18:34:15(10220)

When I ordered philodendron from Alvim Seidel the first time, I ordered P.
selloum, P. bipinnatifidum, and also P. Sao Paulo. I thought I was going to get
totally different plants. I don't know if I'm right on all of this, but from
what I've been able to figure out, selloum and bipinnatifidum are synonomous. I
think Sao Paulo is another variety of splitleaf philodendron. However, Sao
Paulo might be just another name for P. bipinnatifidum, but this is for someone
else to say. This year I ordered another split leaved Pilodendron that is very
similar to these three called P. lundii. I did find that P. lundii is a
different 'looking' form of bipinnatifidum. Maybe more compact, bushy?
Selloum/bipinnatifidum will grow into a tree form with a trunk in time.

Someone else on the list might be able to clear this up. I would be interested
in knowing the true facts on the splitleaf philodendrons also.

Hope this helps,
Susan Cox
