Philodendron Florida Ghost (Non-TC) - Sport Variegated
*PLEASE NOTE: You will receive the exact plant as pictured
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The leaves of this plant are quite interesting. They start out white, hence the name 'Ghost', and fade down to green as they mature. It has been said that high exposure to bright 'cool' lighting, can help to maintain, it's fair colour. Additionally the leaves change it's shape/form as it matures.
THIS SPECIFIC PLANT: This is a nicely established, young plant. Has a few speckles of 'Green Sport Variegation' that may or may not continue. Grown from a huge stem cutting, collected from a mature mother plant, this Non-TC specimen should adapt well to it's new home, and flourish once it further develops a vigorous root system. It is also likely to quickly grow mature form foliage sooner.
Mother/Sister Plant is shown in the last photo. Please note the minor imperfections on the leaves.
CARE: Keep moist during the warmer month periods and generally drier during the winter cooler months. Keep under bright indirect sunlight- away from direct. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. Fertiliser (plant food) can be applied as granular slow release pellets or as a liquid.
