The Philodendron Mamei is a special houseplant, known for its beautiful heart-shaped leaves. The leaves are green with mint green spots. The stems have bright green ridges, which makes this plant even more beautiful. In addition, the Mamei is not that demanding in the care and its leaves can become very large.
This Philodendron is originally from Ecuador and Peru, but has since spread all over Central and South America. In its natural environment, this plant grows under the foliage of larger plants and crawls over the ground of the tropical rainforest. The Philodendron Mamei is very similar to the Philodendron Plowmanii, but mainly distinguishes itself with the silver variegation on the leaf.
The Philodendron Mamei is a crawler by nature and therefore needs a wide pot. This plant should be a little tighter in its pot. Philodendrons need a lot of indirect light. With enough light, the leaves will get bigger and bigger! Make sure the soil remains slightly moist. In winter, the soil is allowed to dry out slightly between waterings. Furthermore, this plant likes a higher humidity. You can create this by placing a dish with hydro granules and water under the decorative pot.
