Philodendron tortum - Fernleaf Philodendron

$ 98.00

Philodendron tortum is a vining aroid from South America with lacy, delicate leaves, giving it the common name Fernleaf Philodendron. The plant's leaves are described as pinnatifid, or pinnately divided, meaning the leaf has extreme lobes, making the plant look like it's growing palm fronds instead of aroid leaves.

When small, the internodes of this plant are often really close together, and the plant looks like a cycad. Given a climbing pole, this plant will start to vine and climb up the support structure.

Plant Care

Light: Place in bright, indirect light. A few hours of direct sunlight is okay, especially morning sunlight.
• Water: Water when the top half of soil feels dry. Increase watering if you use an airy soil mix.
• Considerations: Use a well-draining, chunky soil mix, and use a moss pole to encourage larger leaves. Humidity helps the delicate leaves unfurl.

Philodendron Tortum

Shipping was very fast and easy, plant was very healthy and shipped well packaged with no issues, a little bit of soil spill but nothing to worry about! Plant was a lot bigger than I expected and is maintaining well!! I only had one yellowing leaf drop but that’s expected with shipping! She’s a beauty and I will definitely purchase again!
