Go to Google and click on Images Search, then search Philodendron imbe. You
will get pictures only with links attached. That might concentrate the
search a bit. G.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Traffic Jams on the Information Superhighway

If you've ever tried to do any research on the Internet, you understand the
meaning of my subject line.  It is so crowded, you can't get anywhere.  Take
my problem in particular: I am trying to find pictures of certain species of
Philodendrons, to compare and match with specimens on the ground for
identification purposes.  Websearch using the species names as keywords
turns up pages and pages of links, none of which are of any use.  Botanic
gardens, universities, etc., keep extensive lists of their collections, but
seem to have an aversion to showing pictures.  Nurseries love showing
pictures -- of small, market-size specimens in 4" or 6" pots, which does not
help me to identify the mature specimen growing halfway up a tree.  I just
spent almost two hours sifting through websites making reference to the
species I have in mind, and am no closer than I was before I started.

_Exotica_ said 'way back in the 80s that Philodendron imbe, for example, has
been a parent of many commercial hybrids -- so why it is so hard to find a
decent picture of a mature specimen?

Incidentally, on Abrimaal's site, the Philodendron submitted 15 August 2005
(not by me) looks like one I am trying to identify.  Does anyone have a clue
what it is?
