Philodendron ‘burle marx fantasy’

This unidentified Philodendron is from the garden of Burle Marx in Brazil.  It is an exceptionally patterned Philodendron with blue-emerald venation.  In a terrarium the leaves grow to 1-4″, but it can get larger grown outside a terrarium.  The leaves on my plants have only ever reached about 2″.  It is very slow growing, and tends to find a dark corner where it can ramble.  It likes to grow up a piece of wood or background.  It does not seem to like alot of light, so take care not to put it in a very exposed area.
