Dear Dan & Bob:

	I have not seen this but I will put your inquiry as well as my own 
comments out on Aroid-L.  This plant was no doubt produced in 
Florida, probably by Oglesby or Agristarts or possibly 
Weyerhauser.   The problem is that these that most of these things 
are either sports or some secret elaborate parentage that they 
would probably want to keep secret.  Denis Rotolante grows a lot of 
such things and he might be familiar with it.    From what you said 
about the possible parentage it sounds like a wild hybrid that has 
been cloned.   

	More later.

Not sure how to do this. Try the International Aroid
Society: www.aroid.org.
They have something called Aroid-L where one can ask a
question like this and, maybe, get an answer. Alternatively
e-mail Tom Croat <tcroat@lehmann.mobot.org"

Dear Dan:
   I recently purchased 3 hanging baskets of a vigorous
non-self-heading vine called Philodendron 'Tahiti' from a
Washington plant shop. Do you know of some way I could find
out the parental species of this plant, such as a registry
or directory of philodendrons? I believe it is quite
recently introduced in the plant trade. Purple petioles, no
sterigmata, leaves deeply lobed like a combination of
pinnatifida and mule-faced philodendron. Thanks very much
indeed. Bob.
