true p.saxicolum is a member of the same subgroup as P.bipinnatifdum,
subgroup "Meconostigma", in other words it is 'self-header", or tree
type philodendron. I'd be interested to see whether your seedlings are
exhibiting this growth habit. If not, they are unlikely to be true
Live plant shipments to Australia are prohibited unless you have an
import permit and access to a quarantine registered glasshouse. Easier
to import seeds.

I haven't found any other name this plant goes by. The P.
rubrinervum seedlings are in 4-inch pots now and growing quickly. I'm
anxious to see some mature leaves, then perhaps they can be identified
under another name. In general, the juvenile leaves are broad
heart-shaped and fairly deeply-veined. They are quick to grow out
ariel roots. Their growth habit is very similar to saxicolum, though
the rubrinervum is a larger, sturdier plant overall. I don't have any
more saxicolum seeds, but I will have a few plants which I started
from seed this spring which will need homes sometime this fall
probably, if I think they are suitable in size to ship before winter.
Of course, you being in Australia, this doesn't help. Leslie
