I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! I am looking forward to 2013 being very fruitful.
The first plant has been identified as Syngonium litense Croat.
In the second set of photos is a philodendron (I think) with long thin leaves. I found this at El Morro with the help of my wife.
There seem to be two variations of this plant, or they are two different plants altogether. I am looking for an ID of them both. There is a distinctive feature other than the maroon red backside of the leaves to note. The connecting point (I think it is called the sinus) of the leaves is also a maroon colored line.
This plant gets leaves that are 3 feet long (no joking here) & 2 feet wide.
Here are photos of another plant I found at El Morro Beach. There are two different philodendron types in this pot. They look much the same, but the one with the lighter colored leaves has papery leaves, & the darker green one has leathery leaves. They could easily be the same type for all I know. Anyone have any idea?
I have seen this Syngonium online before, but I can not locate it at the moment. anyone have an ID? I know it is different than the arrowhead philodendron that I have known all my life.(Syngonium podophyllum)
