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?
