Philodendron brandtianum is a rare and highly sought-after philodendron that has olive green leaves with striking gray mottling and silver markings. The attractive heart-shaped leaves grow densely on the vining stems and need a support to climb on or it can be grown as a hanging basket where with a little encouragement it makes a beautiful specimen. If allowed to climb and attach to a support, the leaves can get quite large; if allowed to trail, the leaves remain small. Grow Philodendron brandtianum in partial sun to shade and dry out between waterings.
