Philodendron mamei Overview

Philodendron mamei is a perennial plant with a tropical feel from the Araceae family. It originates from Ecuador and is a collectable houseplant in many areas of the world. It produces large, arrow to oval-shaped, velvety and strongly veined leaves with silver colouring on tall stems. It is frost tender, so best grown indoors – place in a position of partial shade and well-draining soil for optimal growth. This Philodendron grows best in a very airy, potting medium.
