  1. Just a heads up for folks looking to read more into Philodendron and are meeting those gatekeeping portals, copy the link into and you'll get instant free access!

    Also, if you message the authors- theyll likely send you it for free as they don't make any money from those portals and are usually a little irked by their existence 👄

  2. I just watched your interview with The Crazy Plant Guy and ran over to your channel. Glad I came. Great info in this video. Philodendrons are one of my fave so to get so much history and education on it blew my mind…like kaboom! 😱 Thanks so much for sharing! I’m a new subscriber and looking forward to grabbing my popcorn and binging over the weekend.

  3. Love this video!!! Thanks for the research. “Education and research is gatekept by capitalism” yessssss. Basically can’t access it if you aren’t actively in school(paying money to a university)/paying money for a subscription 😣 Catching up on YouTube and excited to see the next 😄

  4. Pam, I wish I knew how to share a pic, but I was recently gifted a Thallamy Bipinnaf (cuz I’m clueless on the spelling) that is over 30 years old. Huge and gorgeous 🖤

  5. Hey Pam! I loved this video! As someone who has previously published papers to academic sites like the one shown in your video I would like to let you in on a little “trick”.

    Most of those sites give $0 to the authors of those papers. So if you’re interested in getting ahold of a paper for free you can normally email the author, who probably has a copy, and they’ll send it over to you for you to check out.

    I know some papers are a bit more historical and it isn’t this easy. Just thought I’d share that with you! 😊

    Again, excellent video 🥰

  6. I just found your channel. I thought it was really informative and funny. Don't knock yourself! I look forward to watching your other videos. 🙂

  7. I love philodendron. Thanks for this really 'comprehensive' information about them. I totally second your recommendation of HeartShaped Leaves how to 'murder' spider mites video. I've used her process many times now with success.

  8. Enjoyed this vlog Pam. I love my Philos,glad you're giving them some love. I get mine from plant swaps here in Barbados. Looking for a Silver sword now.Thanks for sharing.💚🎄

  9. This might seem random, but do you know who the artist is of the painting/print behind you? I'm pretty sure I grew up seeing that in a family members' house & I've always loved it. Thanks in advance!

  10. Hi, me again
    I just want to say, this is one of your very best videos you made in my opinion. Thank you very alot for this. I am sure this has taken alot time of research. Because I am doing this research frequently and there is alot misinformation and old information out there.
    So very great job done here! I am just celebrating it, because it come so unexpected and good.

  11. Exactly i have very big thaumatophyllum bipinnatifidum in my kitchen, and of course I can see the difference between. I am also very interested in how many spicies get reclassified the next years after checking their DNA. Thank you very much for this informative video!!! I did know all that before, but i hope, i gets more newer plant people to search deep information about plants. It's very interesting in my opinion. But Evolution is allways interesting i would say.

  12. 💛💛💛 when you say you don't have a big brain, it reminds me of Winnie the pooh! 🍯 Remember him saying "oh botha, I'm a bear of very little brain" 🐻 love you !

  13. I loved this deep dive. There's nothing more satisfying than learning new things about my plants. And if you have a small brain then heaven help the rest of us.
    Oh and I can attest that sticking the aerial roots of my Monstera into the soil has made it grow much bigger leaves with more perforations in a very short period of time.

  14. The crazy vining one i used to stick thoes tubes that you get when you buy roses
    They hold water 😉 to keep expensive roses alive till you get home
    Anyway stick thoes on the roots lol i did that with my moms when I was a kid and the vine grew longer 🙂 dont forget to fill them up or it will die back

  15. This is so good Pam! Thank you for researching to the point where you can talk about it at ease, It's so interesting. Also the beetle's are crazy infared not so sexy anymore bugs haha! x

  16. Very informative. Thank you.
    I'm only getting into philodendron (found a beuatiful Silver Hastatum in our local garden center) so any help is very appreciated.
    Btw. Schott is pronounced a lot like "shot".

  17. Love your videos Pam! If you ever need access to academic papers (because gatekeeping is bullshit) post a request in your stories! I work in academia and I'm happy to pull PDFs for anyone for anything. I'm sure I'm not the only one!

    Also cosigning Aran's suggestion to contact the author's directly. Honestly, scientists work on such esoteric niches that we're honestly just super psyched someone is interested and most of us hate the paywalls too.

  18. idk if anyone else is interested in this, but philo/philia in ancient greek is kind of more like the sense of love for close friends, as opposed to eros (desire) or agape (self-sacrificing love). i think it’s beautiful that they had multiple ways of conceptualizing love 🙂
