  Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron 'Santa Leopoldina'

Based on the photos I've seen of P.
spiritus-sancti ('Santa Leopoldina') and all the other philodendrons
erroneously called 'Santa Leopoldina', there can be no mistaking the
real thing based on the strikingly narrow leaf blade length to width
ratio. To my mind the only philodendron that can legitimately be
called 'Santa Leopoldina' is the one the Brazilian locals have endeared
with this name for perhaps centuries. And that plant is P.
