Philodendron El Choco Red
Philodendron El Choco Red is an amazing Philodendron from the El Choco region of Ecuador / Columbia. The leaves are incredibly red on the back and have prominent venation. Immature foliage is pictured in the first and second pictures, and is shiny. This Philodendron grows well in moderate light and a moist, well draining substrate. We have successfully kept these in 18 x 18 x 24 vivariums, however, they outgrow them quickly as they climb.
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.
