  [Aroid-l] Wrong name on Philodendron variifolium
From: "Steve Lucas Exotic Rainforest" <steve at exoticrainforest.com> on 2007.03.18 at 15:57:59(15433)
I just spent an interesting afternoon discussing what I
thought was Philodendron varrifolium with Dr. Croat. The species
I have shown on my website won the 2005 Best in Show Award at the 2005 Aroid
Show using the name P. variifolium. Dr. Croat says we've got this
one wrong and the actual name is Philodendron brandtianum K.
Krause. Tom says this is only the juvenile form and the plant
will eventually become tri-lobed. The error apparently dates back to an
error in Exotica 3. If anyone has an actual photo of the adult form of
Philodendron brandtianum and would be willing to allow me to post it
with credit please let me know. And if anyone has more information to help
make the description more complete I'd love to hear from you on that as
well. Ron Weeks has provided information in the past and I'd love to get
this updated now.

Here's the link to the newly updated page:
