Philodendron billietiae x atabapoense is a supposed hybrid of Philodendron billietiae and Philodendron atabapoense.  The leaves have the undulating leaf margins like Philodendron billietiae and the maroon underside of the leaf similar to Philodendron atabapoense.

Philodendron billietiae x atabapoense has some slight controversy surrounding it as these two species do not grow in the same areas in the wild.  It's possible this is truly a hybrid or it could be a variation of Philodendron billietiae, but with a black or maroon leaf.

Philodendron billietiae x atabapoense care:

This Philodendron is quite easy to care for.  It prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter.  Allow the soil to dry out almost completely before watering.  Provide your new indoor plant with plenty of bright indirect light.

Additional info:

Philodendron is one of the most popular genuses of Aroid that are currently in cultivation, with over 450 named cultivars.

Philodendron vary greatly in their natural habits, but you will find a large number of them located in Latin America. Their leaves range from small to medium to large to gigantic! You'll find Philodendron with smooth, glossy foliage and some with velvety foliage!

If you allow Philodendron to climb, their foliage will usually get much larger the higher up they get. While this isn't true for all Philodendron species -- it is for most. We recommend a coco pole to really get your Philodendron growing!

For the most part, Philodendron are easy to care for.

The name Philodendron comes from the greek words "philo" (love or affection) and "dendron" (tree).
