Philodendron 'Majestic' is a Philodendron hybrid cultivar, favoured for its silvery splashed leaves combined with a dark green slight velvet surface. 

It is a climbing Philodendron with cordate leaf blades. The silver pattern is highly variable from plant to plant and from leaf to leaf. The juvenile leaves are accute to elliptic, growing more cordate when reaching maturity.

Philodendron 'Majestic' is a hybrid cross between Philodendron sodiroi and Philodendron verrucosum:

Philodendron 'Majestic' is a hybrid cross between Philodendron verrucosum and Philodendron sodiroi

It combines preferable traits of both parent plants. The Majestic has P. verrucosum's blushing red backside (abaxial) of the leaves and its dark green leaf blades, combined with the beautiful grey mottling and glaucous (waxy/thick cuticle) surface (adaxial) of P. sodiroi.



Philodendron 'Majestic' was crossed by an unknown hybridizer and named by Neil Crafter. There are speculations the original cross was performed by Keith Henderson, as he was one of the most active Philodendron hybridizers working with P. verrucosum and gloriosum.
