  Re: 'Self-heading' Philodendrons.

My dear friend Julius,

I am in hurry right now, but I will try to answer your questions

1. P. leal-costae has been proven to be hard to cultivate, even in Brazil. I
have tried and it didn?t work for me. As far as I could observe, it always
grows in Bromeliad?s tanks, so maybe they need something I couldn?t give
them (besides stanting water). I have never found it in cultivation here in

2. No, P. cipoense and P. biribirense are not Meconostigma. They are both
Philodendron, subg. Philodendron, sect. Calostigma. Anyway, P. cipoense is
an amazing plant in cultivation. Absolutely eye-catching!

3. I do not know exactly, but Alvim Siedel has P. saxicolum before. However,
he may be in difficulties sending living plants (even seeds) outside Brazil.
As far as I know, plant material is still provisorly prohibited to be sent
out of Brazil (legally), until the new laws are completely applied.

Kindest regards,


Eduardo G. Goncalves
