Philodendron Gloriosum (Velvet Philodendron)
*PLEASE NOTE: You will receive the exact plant as pictured
This amazing terrestrial philodendron sports velvety green heart shaped leaves with extensive cream-colored veins. This is a terrestrial variety that actually grows underground, while sending up an array of beautiful folliage making this Philodendron incredibly easy to maintain. Gloriosum makes an excellent container plant as well as a leafy landscape plant for the tropical garden.
THIS SPECIFIC PLANT: This is a petite, and very cute specimen, grown from a chunky stem cutting. The newly unfurled leaf is a round, heart shaped form, and it has a stable amount of soil roots. Please take note of the imperfections on the leaves.
CARE: Being a little more sensitive than your average houseplant, these guys benefit from well draining soil. Water when the soil feels dry-ish to touch but don't let it dry out entirely. Place in medium to bright indirect light, although they can withstand a few hours of direct sunlight if acclimated.
