Philodendron eximium

Philodendron eximium Schott is a hemi-epiphytic vine from Brazil. Leaf blades are ovate to broadly ovate, apex acute to acuminate, with cordate base, distinctly paler on lower surface, subcoriaceous.


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.
