Dear Tsuh Yang,
Philodendron burle-marxii is a hard to find species that grows in the
Brazilian states of Amazonas and Acre. I have found it in Acre and it is a
nice plant, with strap-like leaves. There is also a very well-grown plant in
Burle-Marx collection at Rio de Janeiro. I haven´t seen it growing anywhere
Philodendron williamsii seems to be endemic to Bahia state, but the
plants commonly seen in cultivation under this name are mostly an
undescribed species (from Espirito Santo state), to be published soon. I
have not seen true P. williamsii in cultivation, but the other species has
very narrow leaves. Both are huge self-headers and will grow like monsters
if you allow them.
Very best wishes,
