  Epipremnum amplissimum ????
From: chammer at cfl.rr.com (Bluesea) on 2008.07.23 at 05:48:29(18221)

This is the Epipremnum I have as amplissimum. Apparently that ID is
incorrect, so what is this? This looks a bit like the Philodendron
commonly known as 'glaucophyllum', but it is decidedly different from
the plant in the photos.

I also have the Epipremnum with the more narrow, streaked leaves in
recent photos posted here that's being identified as amplissimum. They
are not the same.

Thanks for any info,

Hi Russ,

This is Philodendron hastatum, and you're right that it is commonly known as
Ph. glaucophyllum.

my opinion is you are right about the name not being glaucophyllum
and it is a gorgeous plant.

I have an important question. Do the leaves come out from cataphylls?

I also have the philo in question. The form I have was apparently
collected in Brazil. narrow silver to blue leaves and it never produces
back lobes.

The name glaucophyllum cannot be found as a Philodendron on any scientific data base. Dr. Croat spent a great deal of time helping me learn about Philodendron hastatum almost three years ago. That species if variable and has several forms often known by a variety of names. The name glaucophyllum appears to have originated with A.B. Graf, but is not a scientific name..
