Dear IAS members and friends,
I have only JUST got wind of what I believe is a monumental news
item to us aroid growers and collectors, a most important
opportunity to aquire one of the, if not THE largest species of
Philodendron known, so I am rushing to get the news out to all who
will be interested!! Further information will most probably be
available soon on the IAS website!
A single plant (yes, only ONE!) of this GIANT entity (its name says
it all, "Philodendron maximum"!) donated to us by an anonymous
member, will be auctioned off during the IAS show and sale at
Fairchild Gardens in Miami on the 16 th of this month! This
species was collected years ago in Amazonian Ecuador, a very few
plants have been in kept in cultivation, but none have ever been
offered for sale or were available till now! The 'blurb' (copied
below this post) says it all, MAN what a plant! A mere juvinile,
but with leaves 3 ft., yes I said 3 ft. long, and already sporting
a 6 ft. spread! WOW! As an adult, it will exibit leaves more
than 6 ft. long by 3 ft. wide, and a 12 ft. spread!!! MERCY!!
I HOPE that whoever is in charge of the auction may let all of us
know IF this ONE plant may be available for bids by e-mail, will
someone let us know ASAP???
May the best man (bidder!) win!! (wear your 'depends' while
viewing this plant!) See you all soon in Miami!
WPB, FLORIDA (where we grow the BIG ones!)
This is first release of the largest leaf philodendron in the world
most likely the universe! Everyone that has seen it (D.B., E.O., B.W.,
A.S...) wants it. It is a robust climber with leaf blades up to 76
long, 36 inches wide and a spread of over 12 feet. This plant is not
suitable for terrariums or coffee tables.
WARNING: This plant has been know to cause botanical orgasms.
The auction plant is in a 17" pot, has 3 foot long leaves and a 6+
