*PLEASE NOTE: You will receive the exact plant as pictured
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The Philodendron Verrucosum features large heart-shaped leaves which begin pale and darken with age to a deep green, with golden ribbing, and a maroon tiger pattern on the underside on it's juvenile leaves. It is relatively fussy and requires precise attention to elements like humidity and temperature. You’ll also need to be ready to adjust its lighting and watering.
THIS SPECIFIC PLANT: This is a beautiful well rooted stem cutting, taken from a large growing mother plant. Recently, in the last two weeks, it has been transitioned to a well draining mix, from spag. moss. During this time it is important to keep the growing medium moist, not wet or dry, to allow it to settle well. It has one viable growth bud, and with the proper care, and patience should continue to produce beautiful leaves.
CARE: They are used to lower amounts of light but will adjust their petioles towards any source of light. Since they are tropical plants they are used to higher amounts of humidity (more than 60%). However, they can still grow decently in a more arid climate (45-60%). During Spring and Summer the plant will enjoy a generous amount of water. Don’t drench the plant but keep the soil moist. This plant is a bit more difficult to nurse, recommended for experienced plant parents.
