it means that there are normally 6 or as many as 9 primary lateral veins on
either side of the midrib of the anterior lobe, which is that portion from the
point of petiole attachment to the apex of the leaf blade. the numbers in
parenthesis mean that there are rarely as few as 5 primary lateral veins per
side or as many as 10, usually meaning that only one specimen had 5 and one
specimen had 10.
looking at a key for Philodendrons, and came
upon a numbering system for
leaf veins that I'm not
"primary lateral veins of
(5-)6-9(-10) per side"
What does this
Thanks for any help!
