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

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

sterigmata, leaves deeply lobed like a combination of
pinnatifida and mule-faced philodendron. Thanks very much
