Thanks Pete. This is slowly
becoming clearer! Tom and I have been bouncing email over this for
I did notice something strange about the plant you helped to ID as Philodendron
pusillum. I showed the photos to Eduardo and he appears to agree.
The plant has grown larger blades since then which I need to show to
him again for confirmation.
A few months ago I noticed it was producing a new blade that appeared
to be involute but the one opening now is going to be convolute. A
photo is attached.

point about convolute is that the next leaf in the module is
enclosed within the current leaf. In aroids all except Lagenandra, the
pachyneurium Anthurium, and Amorphophallus (all of which are involute)
convolute, with the individual leaves supervolute. See Stearn, Bot.
