Base Species or Cultivar:
This cultivar was originally growing in a pot with normal Scandens and was identified by its bright white Variegation. Initially thought to be a White Stripe or Rio I contacted the Nurseries responsible for those cultivars and had confirmation it was neither of them. It was then observed for 6 months and propagated and observed again and found sport Variegation to be stable.
This name has been chosen because 'Isabel' is the name of the person who initially discovered the mothetplant amongst a tray of normal Scandens and 'Mint' describes the Variegation colouration. It starts as a bright white, then over time slowly fades to a minty green much like a Florida ghost.
This cultivar shares identical growth habits to Philodendron Scandens.
Epiphytic, vining plant.
Heart Shaped, non prominent veinage.
Bloom and Fruit:
Isabel's Mint sports bright white sectorial variegation on emergent leafs and for some time after unfurling, much like a 'Rio' or 'White Stripe' which then much like a Florida ghost will over time fade to a minty green colour.
