Re: ID

Dear Helmut,


          As I have indicated to others who were kind enough to answer my query, the plant in question differs considerably from R. decursiva.  I have both R. decursiva and Epipremnum pinnatum.


          As Peter Boyce has taught us, R. decursiva needs a cool climate to flourish, so I doubt that mine, with temperatures mainly between 23 and 29 C, will attain

2.5 m in  leaf length.


          Thank you very much for your input !

Hi John,


The juvenile and adult form rings a bell! To me it is  Raphidophora decursiva, but it has unusual short internodes. I also grow and multiply this plant since years

(mine originally came as a big cutting  from the HBV - the Boatanical Garden of Vienna / Austria, where it grows more then seven meters high in the tropical greenhouse).  For a long time I thought it was Epipremnum pinnatum, but from Peter Boyce I have learned the difference. Presently I do grow both, the Raph. and the Epi., to be introduced to the European market. PS: Be careful, the adult leaves get more then 2,5 meters long.


Good Growing

Helmut Reisenberger
