Sodiroi Ornatum Silver Overview

Philodendron ornatum is a tropical evergreen perennial from the Araceae family. It originates from tropical South America and is often grown indoors as a houseplant for the attractive foliage. Leaves are glossy, green and heart-shaped, with prominent veins. Young foliage may have an attractive velvety texture and silver tinge. Sometimes known as Silver Leaf Philodendron, Sodiroi Ornatum Silver or Philodendron sodiroi, the taxonomy is still to be fully investigated within the genus Philodendron.
