Okay, I have a plant that I am convinced is in the
subfamily Pothoideae. The lactifers are absent, the flowers are dioecious, the
inflorescence with a reflexed spathe limb. I am inclined to think that this
plant is an Anthurium, but the stems are woody, and the inflorescences come
from the leaf axils, sort of like Pothos (which I have never seen except in
pictures). The leaf petioles are not flattened (explanate) but I know
not all Pothos have that as a character (P. beccarianus).
I grew this from cuttings taken from a plant at UC Davis.
The parent plant is labeled as “Philodendron scandens” which it
obviously is not. Anyone have any clue what this might be?
Thank you to all!
