There is only one Philodendron xanadu, and it is a botanic species. Of course there may exist variegated or coloured cultivars, then their names should be Philodendron xanadu 'Cultivar Name'. Also there may exist hybrids (Ph. xanadu  crossed with another Philodendron species or cultivars).
The pure species always looks like this:
Many people still use the name Philodendron 'Xanadu', because it was described as a species a few years ago,
although it has been in cultivation for many more years.

what is this thing with Philodendron  'Xanadu' being so variable? some look like epiphytic ferns, others have huge fat petioles, some are blue, others almost orange.

discuss and explain how this happened. I thought a named cultivar was supposed to be UNIFORM.
