Large Philodendron 'Fuzzy Petiole'
The Fuzzy Petiole is undoubtably one of the most beautiful philodendron species there is. As the name suggests, the Philodendron 'Fuzzy Petiole' does indeed have a fuzzy petiole (the stem from the leaf to the main stalk) and the plant boasts an almost velvety foliage. Because of that, the plant has caught many avid plant collectors' attention and is well sought after!
Surprisingly, the plant isn't too fast of a grower compared to its cousins, but it's not a slow grower like a cactus... their leaves can grow to be able 9in long and the vines can reach 8ft in length. Perfect for someone that is into a "rainforest vibe"!
Originating from the rainforests of Ecuador, the fuzzy petiole will need some more attention than say, a succulent. Keep the humidity levels high around the plant (over 60%), give the plant a naturally well lit spot (no direct light please) to grow! As for watering, give the plant a thorough watering when the first two inches of the soil dries! that should be about once every 2 weeks or 3 weeks depending on your indoor environment.
