Subject: Fw: Philodendron stenolobum
I sent this in about a week ago and never saw it get posted. Can you see it
gets up so I can try to find some information about Philodendron stenolobum?

Subject: Philodendron stenolobum
Can anyone give me any information regarding Philodendron stenolobum? I
understand it is a Brazilian specie but I can't find much about it.
Especially interested in how large the leaves will grow. This is the
information I've uncovered so far:
Some sources say this is a hybrid plant. Both TROPICOS (Missouri Botanical
Garden) and the International Plant Names Index show it is a specie from Brazil
so I will treat it as a specie. The plant has long wavy narrow leaves. There
are at least two variations of the specie and one (not the variety shown in my
photo) has much narrower and extremely wavy leaves. This plant is a self
header and is not a climber. Some consider it a "tree Philodendron" that
develops a thick "trunk" as it grows. I am unable to find a technical
scientific description on any of the normal sources so I have no idea how long
the leaves will get but I'm told they will reach close to 30 inches. At one
time P. stenolobum was thought to be a more narrow form of P. williamsii but is
now recognized as a separate species.
I'm attaching a photo.
