Philodendron 'Jose Buono'

(Syn.: Philodendron imbe Variegated)
Philodendron Jose Buono

Code: 90528

Price: $149.95

Quantity in Basket: None

Family: Araceae

This is a rare variegated form of a large growing tropical climber. Leaves are up to 2 feet long and 6 inches wide. Each leaf can be uniquely different, sometimes just mottled or speckled, other times boldly splashed with white or light green variegation. It grows best outdoors in bright shade and is a fast grower up to 10 feet a year in tropical conditions. If protected, it can take a brief cold snap to 28F. It's an easy houseplant tolerating indoor conditions. Try giving it a moss totem to climb up. Differing amounts of shade, temperature, humidity and feeding all make a difference on how philodendrons look, which often makes identification difficult. USDA zones 9 - 12.

Sold in 4 inch pots. The right image at the top of the product page represents the size of the plant shipped.

This plant is sometimes listed as Philodendron ilsemanii, which is not a botanically recognized name and probably relates to a variegated form of Philodendron sagittifolium.
