  Re: [Aroid-l] Amydrium or Rhaphidophora

Hi Helmut,

The differences (leaving aside the generic ovary/ovule & fruit/seed
differences) are:

Epipremnum pinnatum
Foliage leaves at more-or less one at each node.
Leaves with pin-holes along the mid-rib.
Shoot apex with matted fibrous material
Stems with irregular longitudinal crests.

Rhaphidophora decursiva
Foliage leaves scattered and interspersed bu up to 7 nodes bearing only a
cataphyll.
Leaves without pin-holes along the mid-rib.
Shoot apex without fibrous material.
Stems without irregular longitudinal crests.

Very best regards

Peter
