Philodendron verrucosum Red form (reb back rather than green). I absolutely love these! They look like they have been carefully cut from a deep green velvet cloth they also have tall elegant hairy petioles the underside of the leaf blades is stained flamed-red. The Philodendron verrucosum truly is a must-have for all plant enthusiasts! Some minor marks due to their fragile nature size will vary from image.

 

Care:  Keep the soil moist at all times but not soggy. I've been watering about every 10 days letting the soil dry's a little, Bright filtered light but not direct sun would suit just slightly away from a window. This variety does require more care and fertilizer, fertilizer weakly monthly around the end of the pot, not at the base of the plant. Providing your Philodendron with a good level of humidity can really help them flourish also help stop their tips from going brown and crispy also will help produce larger leaves! You can help raise the humidity placing your plants on a moist pebbles tray also grouping your plants closer together or even a humidifier.

 

Other information:

Size: Pot Diameter 15cm - Total height is approximately 42-49cm 

Toxicity: Toxic to pets and humans, so keep out of reach from little and furry legs! 

Difficulty: Medium to hard, depending on your environment 

Feeding: General, the majority of houseplants should be fed every 2nd watering during the growing season (Spring and Summer), for me, it's about which every 14 days. In autumn and winter, I feed less, as indoor plants will require fewer nutrients.
