Philodendron squamiferum

£29.00

Philodendron squamiferum, commonly known as the ‘Fuzzy’ or ‘Hairy’ Philodendron, is a unique and intriguing tropical plant appreciated for its distinctive foliage and interesting growth habit. This Philodendron species, native to Ecuador, features velvety and textured leaves, along with unusual aerial roots that give it a captivating appearance. The leaves of Philodendron squamiferum are large and covered in soft, red-brown bristles or hairs, giving them a distinctly fuzzy texture. The hairs are more concentrated on the leaf veins, creating a striking contrast against the deep green background. The mature leaves may develop fenestrations or natural splits.

Philodendron squamiferum tends to grow in a climbing or vining manner. In its natural habitat, it would use trees for support, and when grown indoors, it can be trained on a moss pole.

We use 100% recyclable packaging, using FSC Certified cardboard boxes but if you are happy to have your order packaged in pre-used packaging, please tick this box.
