Philodendron mexicanum is a fun aroid to grow that is native to Mexico. The leaves can grow up to 2 feet long, but they usually stay smaller in terrariums. They are green and look similar to swords! 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.
