Positive ExoticRainforest On Feb 8, 2008, ExoticRainforest from Siloam Springs, AR wrote:

According to aroid botanist Dr. Tom Croat of the Missouri Botanical Garden Philodendron camposportoanum does not grow large. In nature it is found primarily growing on the ground in its range of western Brazil, Bolivia, as well as portions of Colombia, Venezuela and the southern tip of Guiana. The species morphs dramatically as it matures and develops lobes near the top that extend outwards with a total width that approximates the length of the blade. Mature leaves look little like immature specimens. Leaves may also exhibit a variety of colors which can include rust red mixed with the green. If you do a search of the net you can locate more information.
