    I bought this plant early this summer and let it grow outside-these leaves are about 12" in size and shaped like a medieval halberd or fleur de liss. it has a very thick woody vine. the petioles from vine to leaf are very hirsute with 1/4" wiry red/brown hairs. *I thought it was a philodendron but I couldn't find any in my books that look like this, is it a philo or something else. Also, it's putting out lots of long roots from the vine wih has creeped out of the pot leading me to hope/believe I could train it onto a big piece of driftwood...!

    Any info would be appreciated! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Probably some sort of philodendron. I think the roots coming from the vine indicates it's ready to attach to something. If it is a phil the leaves could get much larger when it starts climbing.

    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...
