Thank you for the information on El Choco. I changed the label to Philodendron rubrijuvenile last summer, based on what information I was able to find. Taxonomists being taxonomists, there's probably a more than fair chance that the name will change again. So I won't waste another label for now. I appreciate your feedback!

A. Pallidiflorum putting out ever longer leaves, I had to raise the plant to keep the leaves from getting submerged into the jacuzzi tub below. A. Veitchii s even put out leaves over the winter (photos 2&5). Also, my first new leaf on A. luxurians. Love how the texture catches the sunlight. Lastly, a grouping that enjoys the East light in the kitchen.

Those are fantastic. I'm envious of the Veitchii, as mine decided to die on me (not, of course, that I had anything to do with that).

Thank you Steve. And I hear youó-I think I have nearly $400 sunk into dead veitchii s, was an expensive learning curve. It hurts my brain and pride to do the math.

I know this might sound like fitness commercial, but this is the first time Iím getting defined ďabsĒ (haha) ó-on a veitchii ó-that Iíve grown entirely in my conditions. Iíve done better with seedlings that Iíve grown out as opposed to buying bigger ones. Also, the ones I pampered did not fare as well. These in the kitchen are growing at approximately 40% normal house humidity and higher in the summer with screen doors open.

Good news: availability is improving at ecuagenera and prices seem to have dropped since 18 months ago. I recommend Ecuagenera USA because they arrive potted and more acclimated than the ones directly from Ecuador.

Maybe I'm being too nice to the plants--or, as you mentioned, perhaps if I'd started with seedlings that have had a chance to acclimate to my growing environment (instead of the car-payment-priced adults), the results may have been more positive. I'll still try veitchii again, as it's too attractive to give up just yet. I haven't had to dip into retirement savings yet, so I think I'm still okay.
