Philodendron 'Paraiso verde' aka 'Marina Ruy Barbosa' is a scandent variegated Philodendron of unknown origin. Leaf blades are very elongated, oblong with two conspicuous posterior lobes. Petioles are light green/ grey. The variegation shows as mottled pattern and is very variable from leaf to leaf. It has been suggested by many growers that this plant tends to loose its variegation in colder condtions and grows variegated leaves again when exposed to warmer conditions and/ or with growth spurts.
It is a very fast and easy grower and will climb given right support.
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.
