An uncommon member of the philodendron family, the Squamiferum's stand out feature has to be its fuzzy red stems, the little hairs that cover the stems are called 'pubescence'.
This plant wants to climb! and the higher it goes, the larger it's leaves will get. In the wild, mature plants leaves can reach 18” in length. The perfect statement floor plant to complete your indoor jungle.
Current stock is supplied on a wooden trellis. Please note that as the Philodendron Squamiferum's leaves are very large and are prone to some cosmetic damage in transit.
Light: Tolerant of medium light to bright indirect light, however too much light can cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves.
Water: This plant likes to be moist but doesn’t want its roots to be constantly wet. Water when the top ⅓ portion of soil dries out. For best results water from underneath with the use of a saucer to reduce the chance of root rot. Reduce watering during winter months.
Food: Feed once a month during the growing season but not during winter.
Humidity: High humidity will produce a happier plant but will tolerate a normal household humidity. A low humidity will cause brown, crispy tips on the leaves.
