About the plant:
Philodendrons come from the rainforests of Central and South America. Their name is derived from the Greek word phileo = to love and dendron = tree, because many varieties are climbing and can cling to trees with their aerial roots. We can ensure a similar life for them in domestic conditions as well, if we give them some support in the flowerpot, which they could also climb on, e.g. a coconut stick.
This particular cultivar is particularly striking with its interestingly shaped leaves and hairy reddish petioles.
It belongs to the Araceae family - so beware, it is poisonous! These plants contain calcium oxalate crystals in their tissues, which after ingestion will cause irritation of the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and digestive tract.

Difficulty: Advanced
Cleans the air: Yes
Pet Friendly: No

Approximate height of plant with pot: 30 cm
Diameter of the flower pot: 13 cm

Every plant is different, just like us humans. Please allow for a possible deviation in appearance compared to the product photo.

svetlo Light

Because even in its country of origin it lives attached to trees in the forest, it does not need too much light even at home. Brighter diffused light will do, but certainly not direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves.

zalivka Watering

Water only after the top layer of the substrate has dried, ideally from below. However, it must not stand in water for a long time, as the roots could rot.

vzduch Humidity

It prefers higher air humidity, it will do well near an air humidifier, we can also mist it. Or place it on a saucer with pebbles, which you fill with water - but be careful that the water does not touch its roots.

mnozeni Propagation

It is propagated by top or stem cuttings, which are best cut in spring. If the plant is mature enough, even a cut will benefit it and make it thicker. Let the cuttings take root in water or in a mixture of peat and sand at approx. 20 - 25 °C.

problemy Common problems

  • At low air humidity, the tips of the leaves may turn brown and dry.
  • The plant prefers soft water, preferably rainwater, both for dewing and watering.
  • With excessive watering, the leaves may turn yellow and fall off.
  • Beware of burning the leaves in direct sunlight.
