I am delighted to see some discussion on my favourite genera! I only
recently joined this discussion group but have had nothing to say because
I know absolutely nothing about Arisaema, Typhonium or Sauromatum, but I
do know a little about Philodendrons as I have been growing them for over
10 years now.
RE: Philodendron x "Evansii"
Both Tom and Eduardo referred to this as being a hybrid of
P. bipinnatifidum x P. undulatum. This was surprising to me as I
always thought that P. speciosum Schott ex Endl. was the second part
of this cross. Both "Hortus Third" and "Exotica" confirm this. Can
anyone shed any further light on this matter?
RE: Philodendron panduraeforme
I also understood that P. panduraeforme, the common fiddleleaf
Philodendron was now P. bipennifolium Schott. This plant is also
known as the horsehead p. ( Hortus) but I have never heard of the
cow faced p. Sounds like something you'd call someone you were not
particularly fond of ! There is P. panduraeforme (HBK) Kunth which
is still a valid species I think - fom memory it was listed in 'THE
Araceae of Venezuela" by Croat and Lambert published in Aroideana
Vol 9 1986. No doubt Tom can let us know about this.
RE: P. Imbe Schott ex Endl.
For Todd Ruth, the name Imbe is the Brazilian Indians' name for most
RE: P. bipinnatifidum and P. selloum
In Simon Mayo's fascinating "A revision of Philodendron subgenus
Meconostigma" published in the Kew Bulletin Vol 46 No 4 1991 pp 634
-643 , P. selloum is brought to synonomy along with a number of
species such as P. mello-barretoanum under P. bipinnatifidum.
Todd this Kew Bulletin is well worth getting for those interested in
the so called tree type Philodendrons of subgenus Meconostigma.I have
two photo albums of philodendrons in my collection and ones I have
seen in various botanic gardens including Adelaide (where I live)
Sydney, Brisbane, Hong Kong and Kew Gardens.
I would be pleased to hear from anyone with a specific interest in
Philodendrons either through Aroid-L or direct to me,
By the way I am a golf course architect by profession- are there any
aroiders out there who are keen golfers?
kind regards to all
