  Philodendron warscewiczii
From: "John Criswick" <criswick at spiceisle.com> on 2013.02.22 at 16:07:39(22775)

I am lucky enough to have a specimen of Philodendron warscewiczii cv.’Flavum’ which does not die off, but actually thrives on neglect. See attachment.

But will someone among the taxonomists please tell me if my nomenclature is correct in this case? (Sorry 1 Should have put “Philodendron warscewiczii cv. ‘Flavum’.

John: It just looks like the ordinary
Philodendron warscewiczii but it is apparently a mutation with little
chlorophyll. Since that species often grows in dry habitats, often in full sun
it probably does not to be so dark green but I have never seen it in the wild
with such a color.

Dear John,

Philodendron warszewiczii 'Flavum' or Philodendron warszewiczii cv. flavum.

The first one is recommended.

Note, that there is SZ not SC in the species name, and you read it like English SH (var-she-vich-i).

As I understand the proper way to write cultivar names, these are both acceptable:

P. warscewiczii 'Flavum'

Hi John,

I have one, too. Mine grows best in soil and rocks.

Yes, Philodendron warscewiczii flavum is correct. No need for italicization of the genus and species names, nor the 'cv' for the subspecies name.
