Philodendron squamiferum

$ 24.00
Size

Philodendron squamiferum is a climbing aroid native to South America, grown ornamentally for its uniquely shaped leaves and bright red hairy petioles. The name "squamiferum" refers to these bristly structures, as squameus means "scaly" in Latin. As much as we love the fuzzy stems, we also love watching the leaf shape change as the plant grows more mature. As it climbs up a moss pole, the plant's leaves become more and more lobed, resembling a cross between Philodendron pedatum and Philodendron bipennifolium.

Plant Care

Light: Place in bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when at least the top half of soil feels dry -- This Philodendron doesn't respond well to overwatering
• Considerations: Use a well-draining, chunky soil mix, and use a moss pole to encourage larger, more lobed leaves

This is the most unusual Philo. It has hairy red stems. I really like it. Might have to get another.
