Dear Christopher:


            It is Anthurium scandens (Aubl.) Engl. ssp scandens.

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!
