Spaces in folder names on server

I have a cgi that needs to work with files that are in folders whose 
names contain spaces. I've written a test cgi that simply returns 
whether a file or folder exists. It says this folder exists:


It says this folder does not exist:

/home/folder1/folder 2

The problem, I believe, is the space in the folder name. I have tried 
substituting spaces with %20, URL-encoding them, and escaping them this way:

/home/folder1/folder\ 2

but none of it works. How would I reference these?
