Indeed Michael, that is exactly what it is like.
Neither of the following shots really give a good sense of the
shingling nature some of these plants provide, generally with juvenile
leaves, but they're the best that I could find, and can't provide my
own shots until I've got a scanner for slides.
I don't know of any Philodendron species which have this habit so
pronounced, but certainly the species mentioned in the original post,
as well as several other Monstera and Raphidophora species show this
phenomenon with their early growth. The mature leaves generally look
entirely different, although the shingle leaves on one Raphidophora
species are the mature leaves.
p.s. Not a dumb question - none of us know everything that we'd
like to know - luckily, we can be in a community where knowlegde is
