Philodendron 'Dean McDowell' (Gloriosum x Pastazanum) Mature 2ft tall
This beautiful hybrid was created by John Banta in 1988 and named after his close friend Dean McDowell.
Although a little bit difficult to distinguish between Pastazanums (a lot of 'McDowells' from say Aleya Thailand or indo are actually Pastazanums) the new leaf blades on McDowells emerge with a redish pink adaxial/abaxial sides.
Mature leaf blades are pillowy and quilted and feel velvety to the touch.
Enjoys partly shaded (avoid direct light) Low maintenance, I would say care is comparable to Monstera Deliciosa.
