Silver Philodendron

alocasia_nanc(5 - chicago)August 27, 2011

Got a new baby a few days ago. I have been eyeing her for awhile but kept telling myself i had no room. But after a week of walking past her at work I caved. She is listed as a Silver Philodendron. Tried to google that, did not get many results. Thinking it has to do with the common name and stores changing them to their liking. Currently got her planted in a mix of 60-perlite and 40-potting mix. when i was cleaning out her roots to pot her a vine with roots and all feel out so i stuck that one in a small pot by itself. do you think it will grow? and now for the pictures...

If it has roots I think it should grow. Very handsome specimens you got there.

That's all I got. :D

Look up "Scindapsus"

An aroid more closely related to Monsteria and Epipremnum then to Philodendron.

This is Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus', one of my favorites.

Congrats! She's a beauty. I bought one of those last summer at our local nursery's Labor Day sale. It did extremely well until my parrot got loose one day and completely shredded it. I re-rooted the pieces and re-planted them, but it has not done as well since then. They do seem to be a bit more fussy than regular philos or pothos.
