Corey, no one has bothered even to start
the registration process for this cultivar name, so there is no lead that way.
Actually I don’t know why I bother to mention that it isn’t registered
since almost no one has cooperated with our effort starting a few years back to
set up a documented registry.
Albert has done a great job of listing the
names that we have come across, but it doesn’t look as though we should
continue to claim to be the international registry for aroids unless anyone
would like to pick up the ball. Derek

Subject: [Aroid-l] Philodendron
sp. 'Burle-Marx Fantasy'
Does anyone know the history of this plant? I found a stock photo of
what looks like this species that may be growing in the wild....
My interest in this is that I've grown this plant personally for nearly
a decade now and know very little about it but what I was told when I got it...
it is a naturally occurring species that was found in Burle Marx's garden and
it was unknown where it was collected (which is why it was never described).
Finding the above linked photo stunned me a bit, since it looks like the plant
is in the wild and was found near Manuas,
it be possible that this is "Burle Marx Fantasy" in the wild? Should
we be trying to track down this photographer to find out more exactly where
this photo was taken so we can attempt to have a wild locality and finally have
this species described?
What else is known about this philodendron?
