The name is actually
Angra dos Reis , and not Agra
dos Reis. This common name is applied to a Philodendron illustrated in Exotica,
and I have no idea as to the plant’s true identity. However I have
a plant in my collection which might be it. I must say that I didn’t
think that the plant in your photo, Steve, looked at all like Angra dos
Reis. But it is, I suppose, a lead, and one might see where it goes.

Then I'll start with the name Philodendron Agra
dos Reis and see what turns up!

[Aroid-l] ID on Philodendron
Steve I cannot say for sure but this looks similar to
plants I grew from seed from Brazil
as eximium. Which were later IDed as Agra
dos Reis. I now have what looks to be exactly the same plant that was collected
as my seedlings and it is tagged as cordifolium. I know they are not eximiums
but am now confused if they are Agra
dos Reis or cordifolium. Either way they are beautiful species.
I have photos of the seedlings and mature plants if interesting in seeing more.
Can any of you give me a possible ID on this Philodendron? The lrgest leaves
are currently approximately 10 inches and I've had it for two years. As
you can see, some of the leaves are bicolorous. It is kept in moderately
low light so the color changes have little to do with the sunlight. The
upper side of the blade is glossy, bottom is slightly matte. The plant
has slightly red aerial roots. The tag vanished so any possible ID
would at least start me in the right direction.
