Does your plant look like the plant pictured in Exotica
Thank you very much Neil for your effective
assistance. Have you information on Mr MacNeil?
Thank you also dear Dr. Croat for your
intervention, also Hans.
I appreciates much the role of the
forum which makes it possible to exchange, throughout the whole world, our
problems with our Aroids.
Receive all my gratitude.

Hope you are well. AB Graf's Exotica lists
"P. x mcneilianum (F. species no.1 x selloum), selfheading plant
with large leaves almost triangular, deeply lobed and wavy; basal lobes
staghorn-like, 'cold' resistant." F. species No. 1 is described by Graf
as "Fosters species No.1', or "P. cymbispathum according to
Hope this helps a little. I have a photo I can scan for you if
you don't have a copy of Exotica handy. The copies I made were from an
edition of Exotica at least 25 years old so I'd say the hybrid has been
around a fair while.
I have another reference from a botanical
encyclopaedia (unfortunately my photocopies of the Philo section didn't
record the book) that says that "P.macneilianum has large,
wavy, deeply lobed leaves broadly-tringular-ovate in outline". It says
it is of the same parentage as P. fosteranum which has parents being
P.bipinnatifidum and P. cymbispathum.
Would seem that parents are P.
cymbispathum and P. bipinnatifidum and presumably Mr MacNeil did the
crossing. The second article spells the name differently with an 'a', and
presumably this is the correct spelling. Hope this

Has anyone ever heard of this hybrid
called Philodendron X macneilianum? It is, so far as I know,
unpublished and presumably associated in some way with someone named
Macneil. All I know about it at present is that it is being called
this in Paris. If anyone has any more direct information on this
please let me know./fontfamily>
