Philodendron mamei "Silver Cloud"


The magnificent Philodendron mamei is a tropical perennial creeping plant that grows as ground cover and sometimes creeps up trees true to its epiphytic nature. It has big green heart-shaped leaves with silvery dust markings on leaves as though smeared with fingers. That’s how it has earned the name “Silver Cloud”. The veins run deep, giving the leaves an almost pleated look. The leaves are less leathery than many other fellow species.

I love the distinct foliage but the real virtue is easy maintenance making Philodendron Mamei care cakewalk even for beginners.  If you're just starting to branch out into the more uncommon Philodendrons, this is a great one.
