>Hello Skip,

I believe P. simondsii was described by Dr. Simon Mayo of Kew Gardens, U.K. in an early Aroideana as occuring in Trinidad, W.I.   It was subsequently said to be a naturally occuring hybrid betwee two other Philo. sps. native to Trinidad, I do not recall the names of these parent species.   It should be a medium sized climbing plant, the leaves about 18-24" long.   It grows in nature by climbing the trunks of fairly large forest trees.  My friend the late Dr. Monroe Birdsey had this growing at his wonderful home in Miami and took great pride in showing me this plant native to my 'home-country'.   May I ask where you obtained your plant??

Good Luck,
