Distinguishing Characteristics:

Instead of the standard chartreuse centers of Philodendron Brasil, Philodendron Carnival has an addition of darker silvery-green colored centers bordered by the chartreuse. Carnival variegation patterns range from outer dark green edges, silvery centers with chartreuse separating the two - to leaves containing no dark green, only silvery green centers with chartreuse reaching to the edges. The variegation patterns and the addition of the silvery centers mimic the characteristics of Philodendron Rio, but with chartreuse in place of Rio's white variegation.
