I just bought this guy at HD a few days ago, it just said "premium pothos" any ideas on the cultivar?

I'm plucking my brain for Pothos information and seem to be suffering from brain freeze at the moment. I can tell you that is one cool looking Pothos. I love the white variegation!

I'd be happy to send you some come spring. Not only is it variegated, it's also crinkled :D

if you got it at hd then it's most probably an exotic angel plant - which are usually tagged wrong (if they have a tag at all). might not even be a pothos - crinkled leaves? i've not seen that on a pothos (which doesn't mean there aren't any! ).

it's beautiful - whatever it is. try checking the exotic angel plants website - they have a listing of all the plants they offer. most have pics (some don't) and there is usually a little care info, too.

It wasn't an EA plant. We usually don't have EA plants here. Due to Ag restrictions CA nurseries don't usually buy from FL, most of our plants at HD come from Altman's or the parent company or other nurseries within the state.

:?: what's wrong with plants from florida?

the more i look at it and think about it, i don't think it IS a pothos. probably a philodendron. most pothos have a more mottled variegation than what this one has...i've seen quite a few phil's that have such strong markings like that one.

i could be wrong though!

Thank you! Do you still have my address :D Love the variegation and the crinkled leaves.

It doesn't look like a Philo to me. It is missing the tell tale Philo sign...those sheaths that get left behind where the leaf emerges.

I know in the citrus world Florida has some serious problems with a virus, but I'm not sure about other plants. CA is very strict about plants and the potential viruses/bugs etc...

Joclyn,
Our ag restirictions are almost as strict as Arizona. Many plants cannot be shipped from or to LA, TX, FL, CA, HI, & AZ Plants cannot cross into these states without being inspected and sometimes quarantined, and absolutely cannot pass our borders if they have soil.


Foxy,
I'm afraid I've went through two computers since our last trade, so please send it again.
