Hi Julius et al.

I have stupidly deleted the email with the link to the 'Piper ornatum'image before I got a chane to take a look; can anyone repost it?

Dear Bill, Enid, Jani and Friends,

Philo. 'Brazil' was new at least to ME since I don`t grow these kinds of climbing aroids! The other plant in question is NOT a Piper, it is deff. an aroid, and a VERY interesting one to boot, the color (purplish-green w/ splashes of cream) and especially the texture of its leaves is outstanding, like leather, but not a rough as P. rugosum. I THINK the guy where I saw it said it was purchased from a commercial grower in S.W. Florida, and that he THOUGHT that it was named "Pothos 'splash' "or somesuch, I will corner him and re-check the name on the invoice ASAP and let you guys know.

Good Growing,


They probly bought it from us and are growing it for themselves. It is a neat plant.

The first sounds like Piper ornatum. Looks like a vining Philo from a distance and has recently shown up in Tissue culture and seems to be at many foliage growers lately.
