great looking and fairly hardy philodendron that does well in much of southern California (with some sun protection). Often misidentified as Philodendron williamsii.

The main differences between the regular species
P. STENOLOBUM and the (narrow leaf ) STENOLOBUM are : the leaves are very narrow, only
about 4 inches wide and the leaves edges are very undulated, giving this lovely philo a lot of character.
