Velvet Leaf Philodendron

Micah's gorgeous velvety leaves with a deep purple-red color will steal your heart. When the light shines through the back of the leaf it glows a rusty shade of orange. Philodendron scandens are great for hanging or climbing if trained up a trellis or stake. They're pretty easy going too! 
Comes in a 12cm grow pot. Decorative pots and plant hangers sold separately.
As sweet as he looks, Micah can be harmful to animals & small children if ingested in large quantities.

Flat shipping rates apply per order (add more plants & pay the same on shipping). Gauteng R79, Western Cape R89. Rest of South Africa R119 (Except Limpopo, Mpumalanga & Northern Cape R149).

Caring for Micah

Light

Micah enjoys bright filtered light. If its in too dark a spot the leaves will loose their vibrant colour and the stems will become straggly with fewer leaves. Direct sun will burn the leaves. 

Water & humidity

Originating from the Caribbean, Micah loves moist tropical conditions best, but adapts well to normal household conditions. Let the top 2cm of soil dry between watering in winter, and 1cm in summer. You can spritz the leaves with water to raise humidity.

Feeding

Philodendron scandens species grow fast and should be fed monthly in summer.

Re-potting

When the roots start pushing above the pot or pushing through the drainage holes, or the leaves keep dropping/yellowing it's time to consider re-potting. Philodendrons like well draining potting soil mixed with a handful of succulent mix if you are prone to overwatering. You can also add some of our Hemp Super Soil.

Atrium Top Tip

Yellowing leaves, espceially ones at the bottom that fall out easily, indicate over-watering. Brown cripsy leaves that start to droop or curl signal under-watering. Philodendrons are easy to propagate. Just cut off a strong looking stem and pop into water, leaving it in bright light until it roots. A rooting hormone can increase chances of success, but is not usually necessary.

Quirky plant fact

The word Philodendron literally means 'love tree' in Greek.
