Velvet-Leaf Philodendron

Philodendron verrucosum

Regular price £80.00 £0.00

The Velvet Leaf Philodendron has soft deep green leaves with delicate markings, and a contrasting warm maroon on the reverse side.

With large heart shaped leaves and hairy petioles, the Philodendron verrucosum is a rare beauty, originating from South and Central America.

Overall plant height including growing pot: 40-50cm

Decorative pot sold separately.

How to care for Velvet Leaf Philodendrons

Bright Indirect Light

Bright Indirect Light

Find me a spot that gets no more than 4 hours of direct sun, or my leaves might dry up or get scorch marks

Medium Watering

Medium Watering

Wait for the top 2-5cm of my soil to dry out between waterings. This is roughly every 7 days in summer and 10 days in winter

Care

I come from a humid environment so please mist me or group me with other plants to keep my leaves looking fresh

Dusting

My textured, waxy leaf surface attracts dust, removing it from the air and keeping it away from your lungs
