Welcome to the Aroid Identification Forum! Here is the place for you to bring pictures of your plant and (hopefully) obtain a proper identification for it. The more information you can provide, the better your chance of getting a good ID.

Looks to me like Arum italicum.

See how easy that was? Rolling my eyes.

Thank you girls, maybe some one else will have a tougher one. Wanted to see if I could help you out, even if you all do great all by yourselves.

Philodendron gets big leaves after it starts to climb. In a good summer it will hug the tree trunk 30 feet up.

John, the Epipremnum aureum in your photo can grow quite large at only 10 to 12 feet. I have them with 30 inch blades at 12 feet in my atrium. The leaves become both elongated as well as pinnate. Epipremnum is a relative of the genus Philodendron but is found naturally in SE Asia where Philodendron is only found naturally in the NeoTropics (Central America, South America, the Caribbean and extreme South Florida.)

John's 1st plant is Syngonium podophyllum, the mature form of the plant. The juvenile type of the plant is the common Arrowhead Vine.

The 2nd plant is Epipremnum pinnatum 'Aureum', and is also the juvenile form of the plant.

Actually Dave, that isn't quite right. Part of that misconception came from an article by aroid botanist Pete Boyce with whom I correspond regularly. I am the corresponding secretary of the IAS and the article still appears on the IAS site [url=www.Aroid.org]www.Aroid.org[/url]

Epipremnum aureum and Epipremnum pinnatum are very different and unique species. You can see photos of each in both the juvenile and adult forms here:

http://www.exoticrainforest.com/Epipremnum%20pinnatum%20pc.h...

http://www.exoticrainforest.com/Epipremnum%20aureum%20pc.htm...

Each can be found as unique species on TROPICOS here:

http://www.tropicos.org/Name/2102752

http://www.tropicos.org/Name/2102769

They can also be found as uniques species on the International Plant Names Index and on CATE Araceae


If you'd like to correspond with Pete I'll gladly give you his address.

Thanks Steve, I would like as much info as possible.

The Hawaiian text (Staples, G.W. & Herbst, D.R. 2005. "A Tropical Garden Flora". Bishop Museum Press. Honolulu, HI.) places both plants in the same species, with the variegated plant being a cultivar.
The species being highly variable with different leaf shapes.

How do the inflorescences differ between the two plants?

Here is the mature form of the plant.

Mahalo, Dave
