THE OFFICIAL 'RIO'

Original Cultivar to Gabriella Plants™

Philodendron 'Rio' is a unique cultivar to us and it has been selectively cultivated at our family greenhouses for over a decade.

Unique Characteristics

Rio is unique being the only cultivar with silver as the center most color. It has been consistent on this pattern for over a decade now at our greenhouses.

Parentage History

'Rio' was a naturally occurring sport originating from a Philodendron Brasil. Our selectively propagated cultivar was named "Rio" after the city in Brazil. (Super original, we know...)

Consistent Releases

Right now, we experience 100x+ more demand than the number of plants we can grow each month. This can make it hard to successfully purchase one, but we are regularly releasing batches several times a month and will continue to keep growing more!

GROWER TIPS FROM OUR SEASONED GREENHOUSE PROFESSIONALS

Care Tips for 'Rio'

Moderate to bright indirect light, no direct sun.

Moderate watering
Let soil dry to 25% moist before watering.

They prefer their temperatures to range from 55°F to 90°F

These are vining philodendron by nature, but you can trim this plant to keep the shape or length that you desire as well as use a totem to enable the plant to climb vertically.

We include a 6 mo. time released fertilizer at time of planting, either in the soil or on top of the soil, so your plant should be good to go on nutrients for up to 3-4 months when you receive it.

W/ high humidity, these will form aerial roots at each node and if given a textured surface to attach to, will climb and undergo ontogenesis AKA leaf maturation. With proper conditions and ample time, leaves can reach over 1ft long!

History of Philodendron 'Rio'

The species of Philodendron philodendron hederaceum var. oxycardium (incorrectly referred to P.cordatum) has been one of the most common house plants on the market for decades.

They can come in several different colors/patterns & can be quite impressive when left to trail over a pot. They are often referred to as the Heart Shaped Philodendron, and it’s easy to see why.

Within this species, there are currently several highly sought after sports/cultivars. Our family business has been around for 3 generations, but our main greenhouse is over 2 decades old. Because we self-produce the cuttings needed, we have lots of plants that haven’t seen new “blood” in a long time in the greenhouses, which has led to some pretty cool long term mutations.

From these mutations, we’ve carefully and selectively cultivated particular plants to form 2 unique variegated hederaceum plants of our own.

Both Rio and Gabby originated from Gabriella Plants (formally Gabriella Growers) and we have documentation of both sports in cultivation since as early as 2009. Rio is in the patent approval process.
