Philodendron campii

Philodendron campii Croat is a beautiful, epiphytic Philodendron (occasionally terrestrial at higher elevations).  Leaves grow erect to spreading, more or less rosulate. Petioles are  somewhat C-shaped in cross-section, thickly swollen and moderately spongy, medium green. Leaf blades are oblong-oblanceolate, subcoriaceous, semi-glossy, weakly bicolorous, dark green above, slightly paler below, with major and minor veins very clearly showing.


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.
