Philodendron mayoi (MAY-o-e) is a recently identified smaller bladed Philodendron species from Brazil. Philodendron mayoi was first published in the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew Bulletin in the year 2000 by Dr. Eduardo G. Gonçalves, (gon-ZAL-vas), Brazil's best known botanical aroid scientist.
Found in the rain forests of Brazil's Distrito Federal and Distrito Goias, Philodendron mayoi is reported by Dr. Gonçalves to be both terrestrial (creeping along the ground) and hemiepiphytic. A hemiepiphyte (hem-a-EPA-fit) is a species that can begin life either growing out of the ground and then climb a tree or root on a tree as an epiphyte and then grow roots down to the soil. Epiphytic aroid species are placed on a tree branch in the droppings of a bird or small animal who has eaten the fruit of the Philodendron species.
With a dark green upper surface to the leaf blade, the species is deeply pinnatified (divided similar to the fronds of a palm) with 4 to 6 lobes on either side of the blade.
