This rare trailing Philodendron, also known as the Velvet Leaf Philodendron, hails from the rainforests of Central and South America.
New leaves come out bronze with bright emerald green along the veins. They have gorgeous pinky-brown undersides too. Over time they darken to a bronzey-purplish-velvety sage green! It can trail down a bookcase, or climb up another plant.
Light: Thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Lower light can be tolerated by the Micans but don't expect much growth.
Water: Not forgiving of over-watering. Allow the top two inches of soil to dry out before watering. Keep the soil lightly but evenly moist and avoiding soggy soil or wet feet. If in doubt, don't water. Wait a couple of days and check again. When you do water, completely soak the soil but let every drop drain out.
Pinch out the tips for a bushier plant. Once it starts trailing can be pruned to the desired length.
Loves humidity so ideal in a steamy bathroom or kitchen. Alternatively could put a container of moistened pebbles under the pot.
Current height and spread approximately 20cms x 30cms.
Comes in a ceramic pot with detailed handmade care instructions.
