Native to: Ecuador

This is another stunning variety of Philodendron verrucosum we offer. As the leaves mature, they take on a deep blue-ish green hue and a velvety texture. It was described as a dwarf form when we first acquired the mother plant. In our experience, the largest leaf reached about 6 inches long in a vivarium condition. Most plants we have propagated have produced smaller leaves than that, and some stayed only about 1.5 to 2 inches long. Requires moderate to high humidity – may be slowly acclimated to somewhat drier conditions.


To get a cutting started, keep the node in contact with damp substrate like sphagnum moss, without covering the entire stem. It will root well into substrates like ABG or potting mix, but we recommend using sphagnum moss along with it to keep the plant from drying out.

Please feel free to message us if you have any concern or question about rooting a cutting.
