  Raphidophora or Monstera?
From: Jack Honeycutt jhoneycutt at uswest.net> on 2000.06.12 at 19:45:58(4734)
I am trying to ID a mystery vine that I found growing in a greenhouse in
Fairchild Tropical Gardens. It was labeled (perhaps incorrectly) as
Raphidophora sp.

Geoffrey Kerby posted a picture of a similar plant here:


Peter Boyce posted a message saying that he believes Geoffrey's photo to be
that of Monstera dubia.

Here are 3 snapshots of what I found at Fairchild:

Here is the ID tag at Fairchild:


Any guesses as to the ID of the vine at Fairchild would be appreciated.
