Philodendron Verrucosum: Philodendron verrucosum is native to Colombia and is characterized by its large, velvety, heart-shaped leaves. The leaves are dark green with prominent silvery-white veins, giving the plant a striking appearance.

Basic Plant Care:

  1. Light:

    • Provide bright, indirect light for Philodendron verrucosum. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but for optimal growth and leaf color, moderate to bright light is preferred.
  2. Watering:

    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering. Water less in the winter when the plant is in its dormant phase.
  3. Soil:

    • Use a well-draining, aerated potting mix. A mix designed for aroids or orchids can work well.
  4. Humidity:

    • Philodendron verrucosum appreciates high humidity levels. Maintain a humidity level of at least 60% if possible. You can achieve this by misting the leaves, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.
  5. Temperature:

    • Keep the temperature between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) as it is sensitive to cold.
  6. Fertilization:

    • Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or eliminate fertilization in the fall and winter when the plant's growth slows down.
  7. Pruning:

    • Prune any yellow or damaged leaves regularly. This not only keeps the plant looking tidy but also promotes healthy growth.
  8. Support:

    • As Philodendron verrucosum grows, you may need to provide support for its climbing stems. A moss pole or similar support structure can be used.
  9. Pests:

    • Keep an eye out for pests such as spider mites, scale, and aphids. Inspect the leaves regularly, and if pests are detected, treat the plant promptly.
  10. Propagation:

    • Philodendron verrucosum can be propagated through stem cuttings. Ensure each cutting has a node, and root them in water or directly in soil.

Remember that while these guidelines provide a general overview, it's essential to monitor your specific plant's needs and adjust care accordingly. Happy growing!
