Dear Paul,

There are no NATURALLY occuring Philodendrons in Australia, but many years
ago a couple that lived in Australia, the Winterbourns, claimed that a
single plant of a VERY distinctive Philodendron grew amongst a batch of P.
bipinn. ('selloum') seed, this single plant, with the 'help' of tissue
culture, has become perhaps the best-selling Aroid produced by tissue
culture, it is marketed as Philodendron Xanadu.    There should be an
article in the next Aroideana about this plant, look out for it folks!

Good Growing,

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.
