Dear Deni,

Well, this Philodendron hederaceum with yellowish band must be P. hederaceum cv. "Brasil". In their book on ornamental plants in Brazil (Lorenzi, H. & Souza, H.M. 2001. Plantas Ornamentais do Brasil, 3ed. Instituto Plantarum de Estudos da Flora, Nova Odessa) the authors stated: (here freely translated) "This cultivar were selected in Brazil by Ruben Acosta. The cultivar `Aurea` with leaves completely yellowish... was the starting point of the selection". It has became popular in Brazil because green and yellow are the main national colors.

Very best wishes,


I also recently bought a vining Philodendron with no label - looks like P.
hederaceum (P. scandens) but has a yellowish band down each midrib. Does
anyone know the name of this cv?

Deni Bown
