Philodendron is photographed in a Cielo and Orb pot. The package contains a plant in a plastic pot.

About the plant:
This beautiful and rare philodendron comes from the rainforests of Central and South America (Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia). Its name is derived from the Greek word phileo = to love and dendron = tree, because many varieties of philodendrons are climbing and can cling to trees with their aerial roots. Similarly, we can ensure this for them in domestic conditions, 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 dark green leaves with light green to yellowish veins, which are velvety smooth. The back side of the leaves is red to purple and the petioles of the older leaves have hairs. A truly interesting majestic plant, it must not be missing in any collection of philodendron lovers.
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.

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.
