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!
