Philodendron 'Majestic' is a wonderful hybrid of Philodendron verrucosum L.Mathieu ex Schott and Philodendron sodiroi hort. and shows the best attributes of both of it's parents. The abaxial leaf surface shows P. verrucosum traits with the adaxial leaf surface shows beautiful silver-grey mottling and conspicously glaucous surface of P. sodiroi. It is not known who hybridized it, but it was named by Neil Crafter and is an international sensation among collectors. An easy and prolific grower.
From the Modern Latin genus name Philodendron (Schott, 1830), from Greek philodendron, neuter of philodendros "loving trees," from philo- "loving" (see philo-) + dendron "tree" (from PIE *der-drew-, from root *deru- "to be firm, solid, steadfast," also forming words for "wood, tree"). The plant so called because it clings to trees.
