Common Name: Philodendron Billietiae
Philodendron Billietiae is a unique specimen that is loved in the rare plant community. This climbing Philodendron features long, arrow-shaped leaves that are situated on deep orange stems. Philodendron are relatively easy to care for and will adapt to most household environments. However, for optimal conditions, higher humidity levels along with well-draining grow medium, quality fertilizer, bright-indirect lighting and warmer temperatures are beneficial.
Like other tropical species, Philodendron plants prefer increased humidity levels, well-draining medium that retains moisture and warmer temperatures. Propagation can be done via cuttings as long as the plant has a viable node or growth point. Humidity can be increased through the use of a humidifier, pebble tray or also by placing the plant in an enclosed container that is opened periodically for fresh air flow. Once larger, climbing varieties will appreciate a moss pole or fixture to climb!
