Re: [Aroid-l] smallest Aroid

Hi Donna
I believe this looks like a very small Philodendron cultivar that if I recall is called 'Pin Cushion' for obvious reasons given the plants form. It never seems able to get any bigger leaves than those you show. Julius may be able to confirm this. I received the photos on the list message and don't see why we can't attach photos to our messages (assuming they are small low resolution photo files). Any ideas?

Dear Donna,

No pics were posted w/ your note, I do not believe the list allows them.   If you like send me an attachment tio my off-list e-mail---


and I`ll try to give you an ID.



>I'm along time lurker of the previous group and happy to see all the activity on the new list.  While we're on the subject of the small aroids - I have a tiny plant (1 to 3 " high) that I bought at the LAIFS show a few years as an unknown aroid.  I'm not very knowledgeable about Aroids but am trying to learn.
>Would some of you "experts" look at the pictures I've uploaded and see if you can tell me what it is, please?  The lady I bought it from grew it in a terrarrium and since I already have at leaset 2 hundred terrarriums, I've done the same.  As you can see from the 1st picture it's a clumping variety - it started out as just a couple of little plants and I've divided it several times.  I took it out of the bowl to take the pictures and layed out several representative plants and leaves. The stems almost always have a lot of red to them and the new growth is bronzy which sometimes lingers.  It's an attractive little thing and I hope to use it as an understory plant in a bonsai forest I'm growing.  I  took a couple of plants out three or four months ago and am growing them in the regular atmosphere of my house - they are doing fine but are not multiplying like they do in the "bubble bowl".
