Thanks for responding. It looks like
this thing is rather distinctive but it may be juvenile and thus difficult to
deterimen. I will send it to my friends.

[Aroid-l] Philodendron sp. 'Burle-Marx Fantasy'
I am laughing that you ask my permission! Please, go and ask, with my
blessings....by the way I later got some more Burle Marx from Jerry Horne
in Miami FL. sometimes i bought plants of the same advertised name in
order to see if they were really the same. in fact, I still do this. I remember
seeing this picture in EXOTICA in the Brooklyn Public Library reference section
and having a conniption fit of desire over it. middle 1960's when i was sort of
I wanted to suggest that we send this to a couple of my friends in Brazil for
their comments. Would this be ok with you?
Sorry that I asked about this. I did not realize that I still had the message.
I will, with Hermine’s permission contact my Brazilian friends.

Does anyone know the history of this plant? I found a stock photo of what looks

I have grown Burle Marx for years, starting with some small plant I got at
Roehr's in New Jersey
in the late sixties. something about this photo looks highly massaged, and I do
not know if it is colour enhancement or what, since I do not have those fancy
programs to do that. As I recall, many of us plant people in NY and
Massachussets who had the greenhouse facilities, grew this plant and many of us
got them from Roehr's Nursery in East Rutherford New Jersey, a magical place.
