I was involved in that order from South America a few years back - in
fact I have to own up to being one of the instigators. The only success
I had in the end were with some seedlings of supposed P.eichleri, as
the other seeds did not germinate. The only surviving plant of
P.eichleri that I have does not appear to be P.selloum / bipinnatifidum
as the leaves are generally only pinnate and not bipinnate, and the
stem has very long intra-vaginal squamules. So I would say that my
plant is not P.selloum, but whether it is P.eichleri with any certainty
is another thing. Looks similar though to Graf's photo of P.eichleri in
Can't say I'm all that surprised about what you have relayed - just
disappointed that's all. Certainly won't be ordering any more seed from
these people. probably just as well the other varieties didn't
germinate - don't need any more P.selloum!!! Would like to hear from
any others who participated some years ago.

I`d just like to enquire as to what sucess was had the folks who
ordered seed of the different Philodendron seed from S. America some
time ago, especially if the resulting plants turned out to be or even
look like the species they were advertised to be???? The reason I
ask is that one friend so very kindly sent three seedlings of what
were sold to her as being P. saxicolum, these have now grown large
enough to see that they are something else BESIDES P. saxicolum,
probably what we would call P. 'selloum' or one of its close
relations. For legal concerns I am not using the name of the
Company from which they were ordered, but I`d like to hear comments on
your seedlings. Recently I had spoken w/ a member who ordered seed
from this same Company MANY years ago, he told me his yard had
beautiful specimens of what appeared to be a BUNCH of P. 'selloum', no
other species of Philo. could be discovered amongst the plants grown
from many 'advertised' species.
