Rumble Among the Jungle, Match 4.2

Results for matches 3.11 and 3.12:

In match 3.11, the Oncidium gang (Oncidium alliance orchids) took down Beaucarnea "The Orchid Killer" recurvata by 62 to 49, possibly to avenge the Dendrobiums defeated in the previous round by Beaucarnea.

Sansevieria trifasciata took out Dracaena deremensis cvv. in match 3.12, by 68 to 37.

Match 3.12 was going to suck for me either way it went. Much like today's match, actually. . . .

Match 4.2
Aglaonema cvv. (Chinese evergreen) vs. Philodendron hederaceum cvv. (heart-leaf philodendron)

Clockwise from top left: Aglaonema 'Emerald Bay,' 'Brilliant,' 'Mystic Marble,' 'Sparkling Sarah.'

Clockwise from top left: Philodendron hederaceum 'Brasil,' P. hederaceum micans, NOID, P. hederaceum 'Aureum' or something similar, species, P. hederaceum 'Frilly Philly.'

The picture of Aglaonema 'Sparkling Sarah' tipped it in Aglaonema's favor, but I feel that I must apologize to Philodendron hederaceum.

Philodendron hederaceum -- you coulda been a contender, if only you had been given pink variegation genes... or the ability to put a sleeper hold on Aglaonema's candy ass.

Way to go Oncidiums!!! Although I really like ponytail plant too, I wish they didn't compete...

Pitting aroid against aroid? How can I decide!?!

I've never seen 'Frilly Philly' before. I like it, but still couldn't give Philodendron the vote.
