  Re: Source for Philodendrons

Hi, Russ,
How nice of you to remember and reply! I've had a couple of posts to the
lists that I wondered if anyone got (although the one to which you refer
wasn't one of them.)
Yes, I was aware that many - I don't know about all - philodendrons and
synogniums have different adult leaves than juvenile leaves. I helped my
mother plant her household pothos in the ground after they moved to
Leesburg and it shot up about 15 feet with leaves probably a foot across,
but, of course, not dissected. What I don't know is how much Syngonium
leaves change and whether the strongly tripartite ones I've seen in
pictures are characteristic of certain species or are just more mature. A
friend here just gave me a white-variegated form of S. podophyllum on
Saturday. What I'd really like is one of the philodendrons that climbs and
develops highly dissected leaves. It has to climb since I have much more
vertical space than horizontal! I'm afraid my greenhouse is afflicted with
the all-too-common disease of tripled-in-size/quadrupled-in-content. Most
of the aroids I have are small and not-so-rare, but I have a lot of other
plants I could trade. Any other plant families you're interested in?

BTW, where in central Florida are you?
