Philodendron camposportoanum

This product is sold out

A really charismatic Philodendron from Brazil and other parts of South America that is always changing. Juvenile plants have small to medium sized almost heart shaped leaves that are green to purple in colour but can appear pink in the right light, quite similiar to those of the good old Philo Micans. If provided with a support it will quite quickly produce larger, saggitate (fancy term for sort of cow-head shaped) leaves. When they mature they lose their velvetyness and the leaves become much more deeply lobed. In the wild these plants can be found mostly growing along the ground but it will also sometimes climb.This habit makes them perfect for a totem or training across a wall or shelf.

Watering

Wait until the top 2-3cm centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out before watering heavily. 

Position

Bright indirect light and a humid position is great for these guys. That said, they are pretty tolerant of lower light but they will produce smaller leaves.

Like most tropical oplants they are intolerant of frost but will quite happily grow in a sheltered spot in temperate areas even in winter.

Managing growth

Currently about 20 to 40cm tall but each trailing stem will easily get up to a metre, probably in one growing season. These guys respond really well to pruning so when they get a bit big just just cut them back and they'll initiate a bunch of axillary buds along the stem giving you a much bushier plant!
