Philodendron 'peltatum' is an undescribed Philodendron, possibly a new species related to Philodendron pastazanum K.Krause. It is an easy to grow terrestrial aroid and should be given plenty of space to crawl. Stems are repent, leaf blades are broadly ovate or peltate, subcoriaceous, dark green, glossy to semiglossy to matte-subvelvety above.
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.
