GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Philodendron gigas is a climber with deep green velvet leaves, new leaves are a copper color, and veins are white in color. This is one of the rarest and most sought after velvet Philodendrons around.
THIS SPECIFIC PLANT: This is a semi-rooted stem cutting with one very large leaf with an active growth bud. Please note the imperfections on the leaf, and that it was trimmed. Last photo is of the mother plant which this cutting was taken. *Colour of the leaf may slightly differ, as it is quite difficult to photograph. Please only purchase if you are researched and/or experienced in propagation, as this specific cutting will require the right care in order to thrive. Not recommended at all for beginners.
CARE: It will require further propagation in order to produce a sturdy root system, so a humidifier, and heat mat is recommended. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter (stay away from wet, mucky or dry, sandy soils), and grow best when provided with a mossy post or burlap wrapped pole to climb. It will require frequent watering to keep the soil moist (but not wet). Humid conditions are ideal, so a humidifier is recommended, or misting the leaves a few times a day. Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 12°c- 26°F and in lower light conditions than other house plants.
