Dear Steve,

Nicely done page!


> There is a small Philodendron from Brazil, Bolivia, and portions of Colombia, Venezuela and the southern tip of Guiana known to science as Philodendron camposportoanum.  Little can be found in scientific material, at least not in English.  The information furnshed by Dr. Croat indicates the plant is primarily a ground cover but is also capable of climbing. The part I am interested in is the bicolorous variations apparently found in the leaf blade. As the plant matures the blades totally change their shape and develop lobes rougly equal to the length of the blade. The blades apparently don't exceed 20cm (roughly 7.75 inches). Apparently some are deep green while others contain a mixture of rust reds. The specimen I am growing has the rust red mixture. If you grow this plant and have seen it climb, or have noticed the color variations, I would appreciate your feedback. Here's a link to what I've found so far.
