Velvet, the Philodendron micans
Meet Velvet! We admit it, we’re Velvet addicts. Her unique soft, smooth leaves epitomize luxury and command adoration. And the whole color situation? Oh my. The mature leaves boast their plush, deep olive green hue, the new growth emerges chartreuse and gold, tinged with magenta. Floating like an iridescent creature, Velvet will entrance you whether she’s climbing a trellis or trailing luxuriously out of a basket.
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 yellow and falling off, it's likely over-watered.
- Grows best in medium to bright indirect light.
- All parts of the plant are toxic to people and pets.
