Philodendron lynamii

Philodendron lynamii Croat known best for the pink to red colour of its juvenile emerging leaves. It is a wonderful terrestial Philodendron with terete petioles, reddish geniculum with short green raised lineations. Leaf blades are subcoriaceous, semiglossy, dark green above, much paler below with distinct major veins.


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.
