Velvet Leaf Philodendron | Philodendron scandens 'Micans'

I am a climbing or hanging compact plant with beautiful velvet-textured, heart-shaped leaves in hues from deep green to rusty red.

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from Central America and the Caribbean

Height/Growth

I am a fast grower and my vines can grow to more than 2m in length!

Light

I love bright light but keep my leaves away from direct sunlight. Know more here.

Water

Let the top 3cm on my soil dry out between waterings

Temperature

I'm more than happy living in normal room temperatures of between 16-24°C

Feeding

A general plant food once a month during spring and summer will do me fine

Grooming

You can cut any vines that become too long or are too leggy and sparse to keep me looking my best

Care

If my leaves start to turn brown or curl under, I'm getting too much light or not enough water. If you over water me, my leaves turn yellow

Toxicity

I am toxic so please don't eat me

Fact

I am easy to propagate and can root in either water or directly in soil. I can also grow in water only! Click here to buy Velvet Leaf Philodendron
