We're excited to be able to offer this fun Philodendron that used to be hard-to-find and quite expensive! With red 'hairy' petioles (the stem that attaches to the leaf), Philodendron squamiferum leaves morph in shape as the plant matures- from an oblong juvenile leaf, eventually developing into a beautiful five-lobed leaf.
Place in pot with drainage. Water when top 1/4 of soil has dried out. Water less in winter.
Bright indirect light. Will need more frequent watering and more food in brighter light.
Give occasional shower or wipe down to remove dust from leaves. This harder to find, Philodendron is a great climber- giving it something to climb will also encourage more mature leaves.
