Dear Arlan,

Aloha...good to hear from you.

Congratulations in advance for working on the Meconostigma site.  I do not know much about hybrids...Julius or Ron can comment much more on the history and parentage of the crosses. Philodendron x evansii... Derek Burch may be able to comment on this name...

I am looking forward to the revised site... and I'll be happy to help if I can on the species.
