Epipremnum amplissimum

Epipremnum amplissimum Engl.  Leaf blades are alternate, glaborous, long, narrow and slightly asymetric (lamina curved to one side), green with hints of a bluish grey color. Any variegation can disappear as the leaf ages. Petioles are winged for most of the lengthe until the ridge. It is a root climber which can grow to very large sizes. 

The genus name Epipremnum is derived from the Greek terms 'epi' (upon) and 'premna' (tree stump), a reference to the epiphytic growth habit of plants from this genus.
