Have some of the philodendrons come from Australia? I am intrigued by your
reference to being "somewhere beside Australia" as I didn't realise that
some originated from here. I really don't know a great deal about the
tropical aroids, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to ask.
Thanks in anticipation.
