Philodendron tortum 'Thai Dwarf' is a thai cultivar of Philodendron tortum M.L.Soares & Mayo. It is a root-climbing, herbaceous liana with deeply pinnatifid leaf blades. This 'Dwarf' cultivar, as the name suggests, remains rather small and compact.
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.
