  Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron stenolobum

Dear all,

I simply echo Julus?post. Whatever you want to call all this variations
of narrow-lobed (or, in latin, stenolobum) philodendron, THEY ARE NOT P.
WILLIAMSII. Unfortunately, I don?t have a picture here of the real P.
williamsii to post. Anyhow, all material I have seen are forms of P.
stenolobum and since I do not believe in varietal names (they are almost
invariably superfluous), I keep calling then P. stenolobum. If you sell
them, you can add a name on this, like P. stenolobum "Ruffled-edge" or P.
stenolobum "Short ears", but I can?t see any need of a binomial changing.

Very best wishes,
