The Silver Sword has long silver, almost metallic-looking foliage. The juvenile leaves start as a pale metallic grey and become a deeper blue colour as the plant matures. As it is a climbing tropical plant, this philodendron performs well in a pot with a totem. The totem allows for natural growth and a larger, healthier plant.
