Dear Eduardo and Friends,

Eduardo, I was hoping that you would send your opinion on this plant!
As you may have read on the article in a recent Aroideana on Philodendron xanadu, we discussed the many thousands of commercially produced (by tissue culture) plants of what is being called P. bipinnatifidium (commercially it is actually sold as P. selloum). The spathes on these plants are in fact quite different to the pictured plant, those here are larger and externally colored all-green! The plants also have pronounced intravaginal squamules, so perhaps there is need for some clarification on exactly what species in now being propagated here in Florida as P. bipinnatifidium!

Drop me a line!


Dear Eric,

This is the typical Philodendron bipinnatifidum. You can see hundeds of these (with those chocolate spathe) nearby Paraty, southern Rio de Janeiro state.

Very best wishes,


From: Mr Eric Schmidt <leu242@yahoo.com>

Is this Philodendron a form of P. bipinnatifidum? It
is a self-header but is climbing this nearby tree.
