Philodendron ernestii

Philodendron ernestii Engl. is an appressed-climbing hemiepiphyte or vine. Leaf blades of juvenile plants are narrowly ovate, to constricted sagitate. Leaves grow in a rosette; petioles are sharply D-shaped or subtriangular with broadly flaring ruffled-winged margins, (sometimes unwinged), broadly convex medially adaxially, convex, rounded or sharply flattened and paler abaxially with dark violet-purple ring at apex, medium green, darker toward margin, weakly glossy. Mature leaf blades are ovate-sagittate to concave ovate, as broad as long or up to 2.5 times longer than broad ; subcoriaceous, slightly bicolorous, dark green and semiglossy with gray-green variegations above, slightly paler and glossy below.

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.
