Description

Commonly known as the Silver Leaf Philodendron, the Philodendron Brandtianum is an easy to grow cascading and climbing tropical houseplant. It is recognizable for its heart-shaped leaves that are olive green in color with splashes of sliver. New leaves have a yellow/orange hue to them that quickly change to green and silver. Unlike most of its relatives, this member of the Philodendron family of plants has a more bushy and upright growing habit, allowing for it to be easily trained to climb up a trellis or other support. Plus it has the added benefit of removing pollutants from indoor air.
