About the plant:
Philodendrons come from the rainforests of Central and South America. Their name is derived from the Greek word phileo  = to love a dendron  = tree, because many varieties are climbing and can cling to trees with their aerial roots. We can ensure a similar life for them in domestic conditions as well, if we give them some support in the flowerpot, which they could also climb on, e.g. a coconut stick.

It belongs to the Araceae family - so beware, it is poisonous! These plants contain calcium oxalate crystals in their tissues, which after ingestion will cause irritation of the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and digestive tract. But if we place it in a safe place where children and pets can't reach it, its amazing color will surely catch everyone's eye.

Philodendron Mamei , sometimes also " Silver Cloud " with bright green heart-shaped leaves are decorated with silver variegation. The leaves are grooved and the petiole is usually reddish. The beautiful leaves and unique appearance make Philodendron Mamei a truly rare plant.
