Philodendron Gloriousum Silver
One variety that is increasingly sought after is the Philodendron gloriosum. This vulnerable Colombian native isn't a climbing epiphyte like many species in the genus. Instead, the heartleaf-shaped, velvety foliage with eye-catching white veins has a creeping, ground-crawling habit.
Part of the appeal of this plant is its forgiving, low-maintenance nature. It's the perfect tropical houseplant for even the most brown-thumbed plant lover.
Just keep the plant out of reach of inquisitive four-legged friends. The Philodendron gloriosum is toxic to people1 and pets2.
