Philodendron sp. Fuzzy Petiole
Philodendron 'Fuzzy Petiole' is truly a collector's aroid. It's thought to be a specific form of P. nangaritense, but we're still learning about this plant's place in nomenclature! This aroid has beautiful, slightly velvet, bright green leaves, but it's mainly grown for its odd petioles (the stalk that connects leaf to stem). The petiole is covered in a fine fuzz that becomes more pronounced and vibrantly red on mature specimens.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top half of soil dries out. Do not let dry out completely.
• Considerations: This plant loves warm, humid environments. Protect from drafts and grow this plant around other tropicals to maintain ambient humidity. Chunky, loose soil is most preferred by this species.

Really great price for a harder to find plant! Also very full, can't wait to see the leaves get big.
Arrived well packaged. Leaves have multiple brown spots, but it appears relatively healthy.
The plant itself is very healthy
But shipping it lost all its mature leaves due to some damage, but overall the plant seems to be bouncing back.
