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 nicely rooted and semi established plant grown from a stem cutting. It currently has two leaves, and appears to have another on the way. Once the plant is settles, and fully develops it's roots, the leaves should gradually come back up to size. 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. 

CARE: 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.
