Philodendron Sodiroi is native to French Guiana and is largely characterized by striking leaves that resemble a heart. The leaves of this Sodiroi are two-toned. You will notice patches in dark green color around the stem and the edges of the leaf. And then there are silvery green streaks in between further adding to the beauty of the plant. The silvery green is often on the top of the leaf and gives the plant a fresh glossy appearance. No doubt, the entire structure is quite a treat for sore eyes.
The Philodendron Sodiroi has the classic shape of some of the most desired philodendrons, with a twist. This looker will make its onlookers look twice as the fluctuations in pattern and hue vary uniquely from leaf to leaf - proving you can't judge a leaf by its color!
