Philodendron alternans

A stunning and very rare species - Philodendron alternans Schott is hemiepiphitic and has leaves with apices turned upright. Leaf blades are pendent, very narrow strap shaped, with a very fine midrib.

From the Modern Latin genus name Philodendron (Schott, 1830), from Greek philodendron, neuter of philodendros "loving trees," from philo- "loving" (see philo-) + dendron "tree" (from PIE *der-drew-, from root *deru- "to be firm, solid, steadfast," also forming words for "wood, tree"). The plant so called because it clings to trees.
