Philodendron 'Velvet'

$ 24.00
Size: 4" Pot
A remarkable tropical plant, the Philodendron 'Velvet' is an impressive houseplant originating from the rainforests of South America. Living up to its name, this plant boasts heart-shaped leaves with a rich, velvety texture and an enchanting shade of dark green, further accentuated by the subtle veins running across each leaf. When grown under ideal conditions, this tropical beauty can reach up to 2 feet in height and width, and has the potential to expand its grandeur even more through propagation. In a terrarium or a well-drained pot, the Philodendron 'Velvet' will grow upwards and outwards, developing a lush and dense foliage. If allowed to grow on a moss pole or trellis, it will display its natural climbing tendency, creating a striking vertical element in your indoor garden. Although it is not a fast grower, the slow and steady development of this plant allows it to develop a sturdy and resilient root system, providing a solid foundation for the plant. The Philodendron 'Velvet' is more than just its lush foliage. In ideal conditions, it may produce spathes – modified leaves that appear to be flowers. These spathes, with their pale green color and unique boat-like shape, add an unexpected yet delightful element to the plant's overall aesthetic. The Philodendron 'Velvet' is a relatively easy-to-care-for houseplant, requiring bright, indirect light and consistent watering. This plant also appreciates high humidity, making it an excellent choice for bathrooms or kitchens, where the air tends to be more humid. However, this adaptable plant can also thrive in lower humidity environments, making it a versatile addition to any indoor plant collection. Whether you are a seasoned houseplant collector or a beginner, the Philodendron 'Velvet' is sure to impress with its lush, velvety foliage and easy-going nature. This stunning plant not only adds a touch of tropical beauty to your home but also helps in purifying the air, making it a fantastic addition to any living space.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
