Philodendron squamiferum is an uncommon Philodendron native to South America. It has amazingly odd shaped sword-like leaves. The stems are covered in thick, fuzzy red hairs, making this plant an extremely cool species to grow. It does well in bright, indirect light and moderate to high humidity, and 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.
