i just submitted it - but i think it's incorrect.
and still i am not sure what is correct?
i see it referenced as 'Philodendron McDowelii' (botanical name?) and also Philodendron 'McDowell' (cultivar name?)
here it says:
Philodendron McDowellii is an uncommon hybrid between Philodendron gloriosum (big velvety leaves with white veining and a terrestrial habit) and an unnamed Philodendron species from Peru.

Araceum is a good source of information for Aroid names and Identification. The founder administered the I.A.S., Aroid Identification Center for years and has compiled one of the most authoritative lists of cultivars as a result.
