A very rare and unusual climbing plant that comes from Central America and South America. Indoors, it is best grown potted with support for it to climb up or in a hanging pot. This plant has beautiful large spotted leaves. The deep red leaves have stunning green veins and elegant hairy petioles and the appearance of velvet. This plant is particularly effective in purifying the air. A must-have in all plant-lovers' collection!
- Bright, indirect light. Avoid too much direct sun.
- Keep the soil moist at all times but not soggy. Allow to dry a little between watering.
- Appreciates high humidity and a warm environment. You can spray the plant regularly to increase humidity.
- It needs a temperature of 17 to 25℃ during the day, this may drop to 15℃ during the night. Minimum temperature 12°C.
- Slightly fertilize monthly around the end of the pot, not at the base of the plant in summer.
- Even though this Philodendron does not grow particularly fast, as with all plants, it is recommended to repot the plant once every few years. A larger pot allows the roots to grow further and some new substrate also gives the plant extra nutrients. It’s best to repot before the new growing season (spring), the plant then has enough time to recuperate.
- Toxic if eaten/skin and eye irritant.
Height of the plant - 30 cm. Diameter of the pot - 15 cm.
