Philodendron Fuzzy Petiole


Philodendron Fuzzy Petiole is a tropical vine that comes from Ecuador. It was discovered at a natural site quite recently, in 2005, in the Rio Nangaritiza valley, which is one of the richest places in the world in terms of biodiversity. The species is considered to be quite rare as it is present only in this position. This unique philodendron delights not only with beautiful, large leaves, but also with peculiar petioles, which is why it is so eagerly cultivated and sought after by collectors. In nature, it grows as a climbing and creeping plant. In pot growing, however, it is best to conduct it with vertical supports. The magnificent leaves have a subdued, green color, heart-shaped and strongly rounded shape and a slightly mat surface. The leaf blade is much thinner and more delicate than other species with leathery leaves, therefore the leaves tend to tear and this is completely natural. An unusual part of this species are the characteristic red petioles covered with thick bristles of stiff hairs. Young leaves are green-brown in color and contrast beautifully with the red of the petioles and the green of the older leaves. Philodendron Fuzzy Petiole is a unique unique piece sought by collectors. It will be a great interior decoration that will quickly create a spectacular effect and bring the atmosphere of the green tropics.
