The Philodendron Cobra (Monstera Standleyana) is one of the more sought after philodendrons with its variegated foliage of cream white and green. A rare and unusual philodendron, that can tolerate lower light levels, and in time will grow to an impressive height if accompanied with a moss pole. It also is great as a potted plant.
