Pete, I just wanted to thank you
again for pointing me towards Philodendron pusillum as per my
request on Aroid l for an ID on the species. Eduardo helped a great
deal and I've created a brief page on the plant. The tag is long lost
and I'm not even certain where it came from but it does appear to be
rare in collections according to Eduardo's material. I've tried to
include photos that match to his and Josef's description but if you see
anything wrong please do point it out. I've also sent Eduardo the link
so he can tell me if he sees anything wrong.|
I know I often get long winded in my own zeal to learn and scare people
away from reading my pages so I've intentionally kept this one brief.
These pages are really just my personal notes to myself and I use them
to remind myself of what I've been taught by guys like you, Eduardo,Tom
and others. So thanks again for your help.
If anyone on this forum has managed to see an inflorescence on this
specimen and have a photo I'd love to be able to use it, especially if
you know what the fruit color is. That info was not included in the
description and I'm not certain if it is known.

Philo for at least three years, likely more, and have no idea what it
or where it originated. I've taken the plant to Dr. Croat in St. Louis
and he appears to believe it is fully grown but has no idea what it
be. I've also sent these photos to several aroid botanists with no
results. Both the blades and the pot in the photo are approximately
15 cm (6 inches) and the entire plant is small. I grow it in
bright light but have never seen an inflorescence. I've included
of both the adaxial and abaxial blade surfaces (upper and lower), the
and stem. If any of you grow it or know where it originated I would
appreciate the info.
