I got this yesterday, I liked the dusty, silver look of the leaves. It came with the name Philodendro Plateado, plateado means silver and from looking at google links it seems to be hastatum "silver" or just P. hastatum.

I'm considering whether to plant it in a pot or put it in the ground where it can climb my rock wall. Right now it is on the terrace and I need to decide before it starts attaching to the column. The other place I could plant it in the ground is under a trio of fish tail palms, it could climb the palms but it would have to compete with a monstera that is also beginning to climb them.

It's a really pretty one, Jonna. As long as the rock wall is shady enough you'd probably be fine, in the ground there. But if the sun hits the rock, it might get pretty hot, and then I'd think the attachment roots might get fried.

That area of my yard is almost completely shaded now, it is under an enormous banyan that grows on the neighbor's wall. I cut the tree back where it hung over my yard a few years ago but I've let it grow back, I think I have to change what I grow and not try and change the environment. The wall faces north and there is a stand of timber bamboo at one end so the sun only hits the wall itself very early in the morning. I'm looking for plants that love shade to fill that area.
