Philodendron subincisum Schott is a hemiepiphytic aroid which grows to very large sizes, given the right conditions. Petioles are terete, medium green, surface dark green diffuse-lineate. Leaf blades are narrowly ovate, coriaceous, semiglossy, moderately bi-colorous.
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.
