  Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron adamantinum?

The Brazilian philodendron seed has been available for over thirty years.
Few of the rare mecanostigmas are even in collections and definitely not
in cultivation. You draw the conclusion.

The giant philodendron might be P. maximum. It is not a mecanostigma. The
largest leaf I had was 76", 193cm, or 4.171240395 Greek cubits. I do not
know of any philodendron with a larger leaf blade. There might be a few
plants with leaves 36-48" available at the Aroid Show. My seedlings are
still very tiny.
