  Re: 'Self-heading' Philodendrons.

Dear Iza,

Good thought, but I believe that Eduardo has tried this method. In the
original description on the species, [Aroideana Vol. 2, No. 3, 1979] Dr.
Simon Mayo mentions that this species was then being cultivated by the
famous and late Roberto B-Marx in Brazil, and there is a photo of a seedling
w/ about 5 cordate leaves that was being grown at Kew, so I had hoped that
somewhere someone had this plant in coultvation, but it seems that I was
wrong.

Does anyone on this list know if Alvim Siedel in Brazil offers seed of any
of the following species--
P. saxicolum, P. adamantinium or P. leal-costae??

Thanks and good growing.

Sincerely,

Julius
