Oh My Plantae
Mr. Yanakorn Kongtan
Philodendron Florida Beauty
Base Species or Cultivar:
In 2021, Mr. Yanakorn Kongaton (ญาณกร กงถัน) and Prang Kitina (ปรางค์ กิตินา) of Oh My Plantae pollinated Philodendron Florida Beauty with pollen collected from Philodendron mayoi. Of the 300 offspring, 28 displayed variegation. Throughout 2022, they grew the 28 variegated plants to maturity and selected one with superior leaf shape and variegation.
The hybrid name is an English transliteration of กิตินา, the surname of the Founder of Oh My Plantae, Prang Kitina.
Pinnately lobed leaves. Young leaves emerge light green with yellow-green variegation, later fading to dark green with cream variegation.
Bloom and Fruit:
Green peduncle where it meets the stem, fading to a red-green at the base of the spathe. The spathe is red at the base and fades to green as it reaches the tip, with a white spadix.
This hybrid displays a combination of the traits of both parents. It maintains a growth pattern similar to Philodendron Florida Beauty, with green stems from the Philodendron mayoi. The petioles are smooth and round. As the plant matures, it consistently produces narrow, pinnately lobed foliage. The lobes are round like Philodendron mayoi, while the lobed structure is similar to that of Philodendron Florida Beauty.
The long, slender leaves with variegation and a combination of traits outlined above define the unique characteristics of this cultivar.
