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 leaf shape resembles the antlers of a deer (Schomburgk deer, a protected species in Thailand).
Long and slender with elongated leaf tips. The central part of the leaf has 3-5 lobes, and the leaf tip is pointed. The leaf margin is smooth, and the leaf surface is smooth. Young leaves are light green with a touch of yellow, while mature leaves are dark green and yellow with yellow-green veins.
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.
