Philodendron crassinervium

Thick-nerved or Thick-ribbed Philodendron
Philodendron crassinervium

Code: 90682

Price: $49.95

Quantity in Basket: None

Family: Araceae

New! This philodendron from southeast Brazil has dark green, lance-shaped leaves with a prominent thick mid-vein. These leaves can grow up to 3 feet long and 3 to 4 inches wide. Its aerial roots emerge red in color and then age to brown. In its native habitat, it can often be found as a low climber on trees, creeping over rocks, or growing in the soil beneath the rain forest canopy. As an easy to grow large house plant, it can be grown on a totem or allowed to sprawl. In the shady outdoors, grow it clambering up a tree or allow it to spread on the ground as a tropical ground cover. Give it rich, well draining soil. The large center nerve allows it to hold moisture for dry periods. Protection from overhead trees usually is enough to protect from a light frost. USDA zones 9b - 11.

Sold in 4" pots.
