As its name implies ‘Silver Leaf’ Philodendron has bright patches of silver radiating out from the midrib of its leaves. It’s a rarer variety, and the leaves are more pointed than the more common Heart Leaf and ‘Brasil’ varieties. But like most philodendrons it likes very strong indirect light and moderate watering.
Philodendrons are perhaps the most commonly found genus of plants in the modern houseplant hobby, with dozens of species and cultivars for both beginners and experienced collectors. They are beloved for their (typically) easy growth and forgiving nature, thriving in strong indirect light with moderate watering, and often tolerating both low indirect light and some direct sun. Most are either vines or “self-heading” varieties, which have a more upright stem with a crown of leaves. The vines propagate very easily and self-heading varieties often generate pups around their base.
