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.
Plant Care & Growing Conditions;
Water: Moderate. Let soil dry between watering. (Poke your index finger in the soil, if it feels wet, then it doesn't need watering.
Soil: Well draining. Chunky mix of potting mix & pumice. (If needed, adjust mix to your watering requirements)
Light: Indirect lighting. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves.
Temperature: Ideally room temperatures of 16°C- 30°C. (Can tolerate lower & higher temps for short periods, if sheltered)
Pot Size: 2 Litre (17cm)
Plant height: 60 cm
Philodendron Sagittifolium are 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.

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.
