Re: [Aroid-l] Epiphytic philodendron culture
In personal experience that only "sort of" works. If
your plant has begun to morph into a larger blade size it may retain that more
adult form but not necessarily continue to morph. At least that has been
what I've seen in my atrium. I was given a fully adult Monstera adansonii
about one year ago. I attached it to a totem and every new leaf since has
been half the size of the original blades. Ron Weeks and others will have
better experience than do I. I've resorted to using multiple sphagnum moss
totem poles in order to give the plants as much height as possible. You
can find those fairly inexpensively on the net.

I know that some philodendrons need to climb higher in order to get
bigger leaves. The problem is, I don't have all the vertical space for them.
So could I just top off the plant and stick the cutting back onto ground level
and expect the leaves to maintain/increase their sizes from there?
