FW: Philodendron help-how to save this cutting

Mildew is the only thing I grow indoors. Perhaps someone will offer help  
for Carol's philodendron.
...Ron Weeks

I am not an aroid hobbyist, but for many years I had tried to locate a  
variety of philodendron that I had in the sixties.  I succeeded in finding  
one straggly one last year in a store that has since gone out of business,  
and was I nursing it along.  I was recently in the hospital, and lost the  
whole plant except for one spindly stem with one leaf.  I desparately need  
some advice on how to save it, since none of the greenhouses or  
horticulturists around here have ever heard of it.  Right now I have it  
suspended with the stem joint under water and the single leaf sticking out  
of the water.  It was called a blushing pholodendron when I first had it,  
- just a standard heart shaped leaf, but with a red underside and the  
upper surface extremely finely beaded so it looks satiny rather than  
shiny.  Do you have any members that I could contact or advice about how  
to save this poor little remnant? ( rooting procedure, fertilizer, best  
soil type, etc)  It would be heartbreaking to  me to lose it.  It must be  
a rather hard to grow variety, because it didn't grow much at all, whereas  
the standard philodendron on the same shelf .  grew like crazy. Would  
setting up a small terrarium for it be a good idea or would it make it  
rot?   Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
