It is a philodendron that I just call 'Red Hybrid'. You will sometimes see it listed in the trade as 'Weeks Red Hybrid' or 'Weeks Hybrid'. Monroe Birdsey gave me the plant years ago. He said it was a hybrid but did not recall where he got it from.

The plant is a very compact climber. With a very thick stem and very short internodes it can grow without support. The marbled red color on the back of the leaf fades as the leaves age. Total spread can be over 8 feet. It does not like direct sun. It has shown no cold damage to short durations of 28 degrees F.

Anyone know what this Philodendron might be? It
appears to be a climber, the leaves are over a foot in
length and have neat coloration on the undersides.
Thanks for any help in determining what it is.
