A couple of years ago, the Palm Society of Southern California had a meeting and tour of Jeff Brusseau's home in Vista.  At the end of the meeting Jeff had a bunch of cuttings from some undergrowth plants that he gave away to the attendees.  I remember talking to him about how special plants were to him that he received from others.  I always think of that tour and Jeff's generosity in hosting the event when I look at this plant.  I know I heard what it was at the time, but I don't remember it's name.  Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of the colorful underside of the leaf of this plant.  Bottom line, I'm looking for the ID.  And thanks again to Jeff & his wife, I know that there were a lot of other folks who have propagated the many cuttings he shared that day.

Looks like P. erubescens. There are a number of cultivars of it, but don't know which one that would be.

It could be Red Cardinal. Or Ace of Spades. I also see some monstera peeking out. I have two of the same erubescens cultivars, mine are Ace of Spades and Autumn Leaves. But are really fast growers and I have had to cut them back by half more than once to contain them.

I misspoke earlier, it isn't Ace of Spades (I must have been thinking about my Anthurium that I believe is Ace of Spades) its KING of Spades. I am almost certain that is what your hilo is. It looks exactly like mine. The leaves are a beautiful red underneath, right?

Same plant, different angle and a "normal" 35mm lens instead of the fisheye 15mm.

Actually not a Monstera deliciosa in that photo.  I bought it hoping it was, but its just a common variety of Philodendron which is often sold for indoor growth.  I do have Monstera deliciosa in some other parts of the garden though and it has much bigger leaves, which get the large swiss cheese look going as well as the "fruit".

Hmmmm yours is not red leading me to believe it may be Black Cardinal not King of Spades. The variegated one os Philodendron domesticum variegata. You may see it advertised as Philodendron Imbe but that is not its correct name. The variegation on the new leaves often fades as the leaf ages. This plant can get huge, it is a very vigorous grower

The Monstera-looking plant isn't a Philo. It's Raphidophera tetrasperma, often sold incorrectly as "Philodendron sp.", sometimes also called "Little Monster".

The underside starts out red and then goes to the color depicted after the new leaf has matured.

Thank you for the correct ID.  They are sold here all the time incorrectly labeled as "Philodendron sp.", which is the reason for my ignorance.

      The Palm Society of Southern California held its latest meeting on September 17, 2016 at the estate of Jeff and Christine Brusseau in Vista, California. This stunning 2 acre property is filled with over 2000 different species of plants, all of them receiving constant care and meticulous attention.
      Below are some photos I took on that special day. I am very grateful to Mr. Brusseau in permitting me to post these images here for all of you to enjoy.
