Those of you that often read my rantings on this or other forums must know by now I prefer true Philodendron species over hybrids varieties. This one breaks my rule! This is LariAnn Garner's Philodendron 'Maharlika' which is a second generation (F2) hybrid between P. bipinnatifidum x P. stenolobum. As a judge of the 2009 International Aroid Society Show and Sale last weekend in Miami I found this to be one of the most stunning plants in the entire show. Believe me, there were many phenomenal plants on display. You can't tell from the photo but this is a very large leaf blade! My guess would be four feet since I didn't have a tape to measure the leaf. I'd display this plant in my personal collection in a heartbeat! LariAnn is a regular on UBC and in my personal opinion is one of the best hybridizers I've ever known. Congratulations LariAnn. This is an incredible work of love!
