[Aroid-l] Fw: Philodendron billietiae

Thanks Julius!  Hopefully we can all together do more to learn about and preserve this rare species.  I asked Joep about the possibility the burgundy underside plant could be P. billietae in a juvenile form and sent him the photo which is on my "blind" page.  As most of you know, Joep lives in French Guaina.  He knows P. billietitae as well as anyone.  His response is attached.

Dear Steve, it's a beauty but do not believe it is billietae.
Since even young and slim billietae do show clear horizontal veines.
Billieatae with purple 'back' occurs rarely however.
Here got now (first time) gorgious seeds on Ph. williamsii.
They can be pure or hybridized since I cot most of my megostygma's in the same area.   Have planted perhaps a 100 seeds, will see what happens.
Mailed your slides, once you scanned them file of destroy them svp.
All Best wishes,                                                          joep
