The Philodendron Florida ghost (Philodendron pedatum) comes from the plant family Araceae. The unique plant is an evergreen hybrid and it’s a vine climber.In fact, the name “Philodendron” means tree hugger in Greek.The stems are a lot longer than other Philodendron plants. The leaves stand out because not all are shaped the same. And every leaf on the plant contains several lobes.The colors of the leaves are even more interesting than the shapes. They start as white, hence the name “Florida ghost”.As they get a bit older, they turn a pretty yellow-green. When the Philodendron Florida hits full maturity, the leaves become a darker green.It’s not the South American plant’s appearance that makes it so cool. The Philodendron Florida ghost purifies the oxygen that surrounds it.
