These Philodendron stenolobum are the first Philodendron seedlings that have come from our Breeding Program here at Gabriella Plants!
Philodendron stenolobum is one of the most stunning species with its glossy green, long, narrow and wavy leaves that can get over 3' long and 1' wide! Will make a great indoor statement plant or understory feature plant in your garden.
**Note to Customer: These 4" Philodendron stenolobum are being grown in 100% Sphagnum Moss. That makes their care slightly different than if they were being grown in a typical Potting Mix Substrate. Sphagnum moss has incredible water retention properties so watering routines may vary from other plants. To best care for these plants it is recommended to keep the sphagnum moss moist at all times, or allowing them to dry out slightly between waterings. For best watering practices it would be recommended to sit the pot in standing water for approx. 20 minutes and allow the sphagnum moss to wick the water up but never keep the pots sitting in water and ensure all water drains afterwards.
These plants can continue to be grown in 100% sphagnum moss and be very happy this way! In the future when they want a larger pot, it would be recommended to up-pot them still into 100% sphagnum moss for best growth results. If you would like to repot them into a more standard potting media, use care to remove as much sphagnum moss from the root zone as possible, but be aware that some root damage may occur in this process.**
#EveryPlantHasAStory and these Philodendron stenolobum seeds have a great one! On May 25th the infructescence (stalk of fruit) on one of our mature Philodendron had countless berries that were ripe & ready to be harvested! [See Last Photo] Each berry had anywhere from 8-12 seeds inside so it took about 12 hours to collect all of the seeds! That makes these seedlings a little over 6 months old!
