Philodendron Sagittifolium 'Tuxtlanum Rubra' is simply stunning. The leaves are green and long just like the regular species. The main difference and attraction is the under side of the leaf, with its varying red colouring.
Philodendron Sagittifolium is considered to be extremely morphologically variable (variable in physical form, e.g. leaf shape, and external structure of the plant). This makes for interesting observations as the plant matures and each new leaf unfurls. Slide through the photos to see some of the variations.
For best growing conditions keep in bright, indirect lighting. Direct sunlight will burn the foliage. Will tolerate partial shade. Prefers moist soil.
To keep leaves looking lush, gently wipe with a damp cloth.
Philodendron plants are not just decorative, they have the ability to cleanse the air you breathe and act as anti-pollutant
Plants will only be sent out to you on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to avoid plants being caught in transit over the weekend. If plants are ordered after 12noon on a Wednesday they will be couriered to you on the following Monday. Tracking numbers will be emailed out to you as soon as the package is picked up by our Courier and on its way to you.
Please allow up to two working days for North island delivery, three days for South island deliveries and an extra day for rural deliveries. Unfortunately, we do not ship to PO BOX addresses. If your plant(s) or any other goods have not arrived in this time frame, please flick Toni an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that the plant in the photograph is not the exact plant that you will be receiving but a representation of the product. The plant in this photograph is for the purpose of building this website only. Due to the nature of growing plants, they will come in slightly different sizes and formation. Philodendron species are known to be highly variable and not every leaf of every specimen will always appear the same. Because of our approach to sustainability, we re-use pots where we can. Pot size may vary sometimes.
I prefer to only sell well-rooted, established plants.
