Help with remembering plant name?
Hope someone can help jog my memory with this.
Years ago I saw a house plant that I think may have been a type of philodendron (or perhaps not). It had dark purple/magenta foliage, the leaves hung down distinctly.
It is driving me nuts because I hunted for an example all over the internet at the time and only found it available from a Dutch nursery, at the time the shipping costs were prohibitive (around 15 years ago). Now I think it is worth searching again for it as the cost won't be such an issue and it may be available from the newer online suppliers.
I think there may have been a picture of it The House Plant Expert book by Dr. D. G. Hessayon though can't be sure now if that is where I saw it.
Any ideas? I'm guessing it was a pretty tall plant up to around 6 feet and grown up poles like a philodendron.
