Philodendron Burle Marx Fantasy
Philodendron “Burle Marx Fantasy” is native to Brazil, and is an undescribed species that was found in the Burle Marx Garden. It has a smooth leaf surface, but has scaly venation, which is one reason why it is such a popular Philodendron. It is a slower growing species, and will not take over a vivarium. These have 1-4 inch leaves in a vivarium, on average. This Philodendron adheres well to backgrounds, driftwood, etc. It does well in moderate, indirect light and moderate to high humidity, but appreciates airflow. Moist sphagnum moss is helpful for rooting this species.
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
