Opal, the Variegated Heart Leaf Philodendron
Meet Opal! A go-to guest at most art and fashion events in NYC, she has eschewed her very recognizable last name (yes, those are her parents) and entrenched herself in the philanthropic community. She has real goals and her own ambition behind them. Drop her name to friends if you must, but don’t forget it’s Opal, just Opal.
We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.
This plant ships as a 2″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.
- Likes regular water, somewhat drought tolerant, never let the bottom of the pot sit in water! If leaves are turning dull yellow and falling off, it's likely over-watered.
- Grows best in medium to bright indirect light. Can grow in low light but will grow slower and lose variegation.
- All parts of the plant are toxic to people and pets.
