Thanks for the comments Russ. …and

It is definitely not the “autumn”,
“prince of orange” as I have and am growing them. This leaf
has strong puckering at the midrib and is all but pointed at the tip.
It is definitely considered more
self-heading growth habit but given the thickness of the cane and age of this
specimen, it takes on a very short internode somewhat vining habit. The
underside midrib retains the dark pink / red hue and there is evidence of pink
which remains on the margin of the leaves. The underside of the leaf retains a
much lighter green than the top side.
Hope this assists in reaching a proper
I cannot even imagine the philodendron’s

Perhaps there is a short self-heading stem simulating a 'vine' that is
confusing the issue.
