Hi Julius,

No, it's not Amorph symonianus. While my particular plant does not have
a well-pronounced 'knee' others on the sales table did (mine has the
knee but it's not a textbook example). The swollen joints I mentioned
are not the intercalary bulbils of symonianus (which I'm familiar with).
Aside from which Am. symonianus would have one large bulbil at the top
of the petiole (plus additional bulbils at further divisions of the
leaflet on larger plants). On this plant the place where the leaf first
begins to divide into its three primary groupings of leaflets has three
large rounded joints.

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
