Philodendron gloriosum is Insta-famous for its huge velvety green leaves with bright white veins. This crawling aroid grows on the jungle floor, unlike the climbing and epiphytic aroids we typically grow in the home. Since this plant grows far below the canopy, it appreciates bright dappled light without a lot of (or any) direct sun. Great for pots that are wider than they are tall, the rhizomatous stem of Philodendron gloriosum will eventually climb over the edge of its pot and reach into your living space.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top half of soil dries out. Do not let dry out completely.
• Considerations: The new leaves require some extra humidity to unfurl without issue. We like to mist emerging leaves to help with the process.

Well Named Philodendron
I waited a while to write this review because my plant was damaged in shipping. It was well packed but the delivery person handed it to me upside down so I’m pretty sure it had a rough trip. It lost 3 leaves and the beginning of a new leaf. The ones that were left were pretty scratched up too. Still it is a beautiful plant. Now it’s got a new HUGE leaf popping up. This plant had to be super healthy to survive the trip and still be ready to grow. Pistil’s did offer to make it right but it really wasn’t their fault. I’m delighted with my plant and looking forward to more beautiful leaves.
Love ordering from pistils, they always have high quality plants! Plant arrived in great condition (a tiny bit of rot in-transit, but that came off easily). Gorgeous specimen with 3 huge leaves and two new ones about to open.
