When juvenile the leaves of E. giganteum
are often rippled in this manner. Once it is larger, the leaves tend to be
Monsteroid climbers, even in different genera,
often look rather similar so I would need to see a photograph of the plant in
the Kampong in order to have a chance of id-ing it.
Amydrium zippellanum is the same as
A. magnificum; this is VERY distinctive and if the plant in the Kampong
looks like E. giganteum then it is certainly NOT A.
If you can send me an image I will have a go at

Its a beauty!
Peter, is it
common/normal for Epipremnum giganteum to have these rippled or wavy leaves as
seen in Calvin's picture? Its too far to tell, but there is a
plant growing at the Kampong in Miami that looks very close to it, but doesnt
have this characteristic. I believe it is labeled Rhodospatha venosum
but I may be wrong....it doesnt look too much like that species from pics Ive
seen. I have also heard that it was Amyrdium magnificum....but isnt this
an old name for Amydrium zippelianum....which the plant is question is
I think you also mention in one of your articles in a
relatively recent Aroideana that E. giganteaum can be seen occasionally in
collections in South Florida? Perhaps this is the mystery climber at the
Aroid-l mailing list
