I have been trying to recognize species in the P. bipinnatifidum
complex for at least 6 years and I have learned that the leaves are useless.
There are so many forms, even when you are dealing with wild forms that you
couldnŽt say they are the same thing. People used this natural variation to
make cultivars that are more or less uniform in any leafy aspect. But most
material I have seen in the USA are based on the goodŽnŽold Philodendron
bipinnatifidum. Philodendron mello-barretoanum is ocasionally seen, mainly
because it was spread by Roberto Burle-Marx. Philodendron lundii is pretty
rare outside Brazil, despite it is the main cultivated species in Central
Brazil (mainly Brasilia).

When I ordered philodendron from Alvim Seidel the first time, I ordered P.
selloum, P. bipinnatifidum, and also P. Sao Paulo. I thought I was going
totally different plants. I don't know if I'm right on all of this, but
what I've been able to figure out, selloum and bipinnatifidum are
think Sao Paulo is another variety of splitleaf philodendron. However, Sao
Paulo might be just another name for P. bipinnatifidum, but this is for
else to say. This year I ordered another split leaved Pilodendron that is
similar to these three called P. lundii. I did find that P. lundii is a
different 'looking' form of bipinnatifidum. Maybe more compact, bushy?
Selloum/bipinnatifidum will grow into a tree form with a trunk in time.
Someone else on the list might be able to clear this up. I would be
in knowing the true facts on the splitleaf philodendrons also.
Hope this helps,

what, exactly, do I have? Thank you! Leslie
