Philodendron 'Jose Buono' is a Philodendron cultivar, favoured for its unique and (generally) stable variegated leaves. 

It is a climbing Philodendron with coracious, elliptical to oblong leaf blades. The variegation is white to lemon green, from small patches to half moon leaves.


Philodendron 'Jose Buono' was named after Jose Buono Colon from Puerto Rico, yet little is known about the origins of this cultivar.

It has been around the commercial circuit for over 50 years, which might explain the lack of documentation.
