The first one is a hybrid between Philodendron verrucosum and something else.

The reddish "stained glass windows" underneath is a distinguishing feature of Philo verrucosum.

Below is Philodendron gigas, largest Philodendron in the world.

I think the first one is P.sodiroi . the slight spotting is a dead giveaway . verucosum parentage should have a hairy petiole /
I have a plant I think is a verucosum hybrid ,,it gets very large , has red reverse and slight hairy petiole .

Yeah, it did occur to me about the lack of bristles on the petioles which is a very distinguishing feature of the verrucosum group of Philos. Thanks for the lead in the ID Michael. Will check up P sodiroi.
