Philodendron werneri is a cool growing species that loves to climb! This species has developed extrafloral nectaries that produce sugar encouraging ants to feed and in turn protect the plant against herbivory. When grown indoors this results in a buildup on the leaves so rinse them regularly.
One of the most variable genera of houseplants on the market, Philodendrons can come in many shapes, sizes, forms & colors! Most Philodendrons are either vining or mounding types, & many Philodendrons will change their leaf shape as they mature!
~Do Not place in full sun. Though many Philodendron can be acclimated to full sun, our Philodendron have been grown under shaded, greenhouse conditions.
~Philodendron are considerably hardy & tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, but for the best growth it is recommended to provide higher levels of humidity.
~If trying to get Philodendron to mature, give them a moss pole or wood board to climb! Make sure to keep the pole or board saturated though so aerial roots can attach & actually climb!
