Philodendron sharoniae

Philodendron sharoniae Croat is characterised by its long, pendent, pleated leaves. It is an epiphyte to 3 m tall. Petioles are terete, coarsely ribbed, the ribs intermittant, medium to dark green, matte or weakly glossy. Leaf blades are subcoriaceous, elongate-hastate-sagittate,long acuminate at the apex, dark green and semiglossy above, slightly paler and glossy below.

P. sharoniae is a close relativeof Philodendron tenue K. Koch & Augustin, but its blades are much longer and narrower.

The species is named in honor of Sharon Christoph who, along with her husband, Chris Davidson has been  a great benefactor of Dr. Thomas Croat's work with the Araceae.

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.
