Philodendron 'Silver cloud' is an undescribed Philodendron of unknown origin charcterized by its terrestial habit and wonderfully ornamental foliage. It is said to be a Philodendron mamei André hybrid or cultivar, but this information is not confirmed. Compared to P. mamei, its leaf blades are still cordate and undulate, but much rounder and the silver-grey mottled pattern is much more conspicous. It is terrestrial Philodendron with a repent stem.
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.
