This is a vigorous hybrid philodendron whose parents originated in tropical America. It is ideal for growing on a moss pole because the foliage is a uniform size. The glossy, bright green leaves are medium-size, arrow- shaped, on short stalks and closely spaced along the stems. It is a plant grown particularly for its resistance to both cold and disease.
Size: Height up to 10 ft. (3 m) if left unchecked.
Light: Indirect sunlight or partial shade.
Temperature: Normal room.
Moisture: Keep moist from spring to fall. In winter, apply only enough water to prevent soil drying out. Feeding: Give standard liquid fertilizer once a month from spring to summer.
Propagation: Take 4 in. (10 cm) tip cuttings in spring or summer.
Special needs: For the aerial roots to cling Lo the moss pole, it should be kept moist at all times. Once the roots attach themselves, the plant should become self-supporting, with no need for unsightly ties or string.
