Hi Ferenc,


I suspect that this is one of the entire-leaved Syngonium species, perhaps S. chiapense or S. macrophyllum. When you cut a stem or leaf, id there copiuous milky sap?


Very best

Subject: [Aroid-l] Philodendron "SCHÖNBRUNNER HYBRID"



I have a house plant that I would like to be identified, if possible. It is a climbing aroid and looks like the plant offered in the german ebay as Philodendron "SCHÖNBRUNNER HYBRID". Its leaf venation does not look like that of a Philodendron. It has collective veins (at least I think so) like Anthuriums. However, it has no geniculum at the junction of the petiole and the leaf blade. The upper side of its leaves is slightly velvety. The upper side of the older leaves is dark green, the lower side is lighter green. The younger leaves are bicolorous with darker and lighter green areas as if it would have been sick, but it is not the case. As the leaves mature, the upper surface becomes uniformly dark green. The leaves are about as large as a man's hand (about 18 cm x 11 cm). It hasn't flowered for me, so I can't say anything about the inflorescence. I have taken some photos of it (attached).

Is it simply an unknown hybrid? Or something else?
