Beautiful, large and velvety climber! Philodendron gigas is a hemiepiphyte, it can grow either from the ground up the side of a tree or send roots from a tree branch down to the ground. Velvet leaves are olive green to dark green and each leaf matures to 3'-4' long!
NOTE TO CUSTOMER: There is some mechanical damage present and water spots on the older leaves, which no way affects the health of the plant nor the new growth.
~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!
