|Those of you that often read by
rantings on this or other forums must know by now I prefer true Philodendron
species over hybrids varieties. This one breaks my rule!
This is LariAnn Garner's Philodendron 'Maharalika' which is a second
generation (F2) hybrid between P. bipinnatifidum x P.
stenolobum. I found this to be one of the most stunning plants in
the entire IAS show in Miami and there were many phenomenal plants on
You can't tell from the photo but this is a very large leaf blade! My
guess would be four feet since I didn't have a tape to measure the leaf.
As one of the IAS members asked to judge the show I wanted to steal
this one! I'd display this plant in my personal collection in a
heartbeat and I own very few hybrids.
Congratulations LariAnn. This is an incredible work of love! Very well
If you missed the 2009 show please begin to make your plans to attend
next September. You'll come home with plants you never knew existed!
But sorry, I don't think this one is for sale just yet.
