INDOOR PLANT - Philodendron Gigas Giant in 12cm Pots
Philodendrons were first discovered in Brazil’s rainforests. The name Philodendron comes from the Greek word phileo, meaning “to love” and dendron meaning “tree”. Philodendrons are a diverse genus made up of nearly 500 species, most commonly found in tropical, humid climates. In nature they are typically large and imposing plants, climbing other plants and growing on other trees.
Philodendron Gigas is an easy to care tropical plant that requires minimal attention from you both indoors and outdoors.
This rare plant has velvety green leaves with yellow and brown speckles. The new foliage is copper-colored with white veins.
As a house-plant they can either be trained to climb, using a trellis or totem pole, or left to hang and vine. This beautiful plant has a bamboo trellis included in-which the plant has already started to weave and climb up.
Position your Philodendron in bright indirect sunlight ensuring that it doesn't receive direct hot sun.
Water your Gigas when the top 2-3 cm's of soil are dry to touch - the regularity of this will depend on the season and the spot you are growing your plant. When you do water it give it a good soak that all the root bed can access water - this will give you a strong and healthy plant. Then allow to dry before re-watering.
