Philodendron Micans


Botanical Name: Philodendron hederaceum var. hederaceum

***Available for in-store pickup only!!***

The leaves unfurl as a chartreuse color edged in pink and then become a velvety, iridescent deep green with a deep purple-red color on the back side that looks like shades of rusty orange when the light shines through. You can grow these as a trailing vine or you can train them to grow up a moss pole, but either way they will look amazing!

Light: These like bright indirect light, as direct sunshine can burn the leaves, so if you have a southern facing window make sure to have a sheer curtain or keep the plant farther from the window. Philodendrons are known to tolerate lower light levels, but tolerate does not mean thrive, so if you want a really leggy plant with small leaves, then low light works just fine. 

Water: Water these when the top couple inches of the potting medium is dry, but never let them sit in water as that will lead to root rot. Make sure to water them fully so that water is running out of the drainage holes. During the colder months make sure to water a little less often.
