The philodendron splendid is considered a rare plant. It has the characteristic heart-shaped leaves of a philodendron, but the leaves are big, bold, and velvety with beautiful cream-colored veins. It is a hybrid plant, a cross between the Philodendron verrucosum and the melanochrysum. Each leaf can grow up to a foot wide and two feet long.
Plants grow four to six feet tall, but because of their large leaf size, they needed a more significant amount of space to spread out than some of the smaller philodendrons.
