The Philodendron Mamei or ‘Silver Cloud’ is a collectible and difficult to find variety that still manages to be easy for beginners. We especially recommend this philodendron for fans of Scindapsus as the coloring is incredibly similar. The leaves themselves are much thinner though, and one must be careful to keep them away from direct sun to keep them from burning. Giving this plant something to climb up will do wonders for it’s growth, and you can expect it’s watering needs to be similar to the other philodendrons and jungle plants in your collection.
