Philodendron billietiae x atabapoense

Philodendron billietiae x atabapoense is a beautiful scandent hybrid producing elongated, lobed leaves on long petioles. It is a hybrid of Philodendron billietiae Croat and Philodendron atabapoense G.S.Bunting.

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.
