Philodendron Plowmanii

Philodendron plowmanii is known by collectors to possess an unusual petiole.  The petiole is the stalk that connects  the lamina of a leaf blade to the stem at the plant's base.  The petioles possess an ornate ruffled edge which is both undulated (waved)  and sharply "D" shaped when cut as a cross section.  The petioles are broadly convex (curved outward) on the adaxial (upper) surface and are both undulated (wavy) and winged,  They are medium green in color while being  only slightly glossy and slightly streaked abaxially (on the upper surface),   The petioles are also undulated near the apex or upper end nearest the leaf blade and are often tinged with a reddish purple as can be seen in several of our photos. is a species of flowering plant in the family Araceae, endemic to Colombia but widely cultivated elsewhere as an ornamental.

Sometimes confused with Philodendron mamei, Philodendron plowmanii is a beautiful ovoid (oval) Philodendron from Ecuador and Peru, Philodendron plowmanii (plow-MAN-e-eye) is a terrestrial aroid with a stem that is known in botany to be repent.  The stem is not the support for any single leaf as is often thought by collector/growers but instead is the base of the plant.  The simple definition of "repent" is form of growth were the stem creeps across the ground rather than climbing a tree. Along the stem can be found internodes which are the segments found between two nodes.  The petioles which support the leaf blades as well as the roots grow from these nodes.  In the case of Philodendron plowmanii the internodes are short leaving the nodes closely spaced together.  (see photo near the bottom of this page)
