Philodendron squamiferum is sometime known as the Red Bristle Philodendron due to the red, bristle-like hairs that grow on their elongated petioles (leaf stem). They are native to South America, in particular Brazil, Columbia and Peru.

A very interesting and unusual looking climbing Philodendron with big lobed leaves that are very easy to grow. 

Watering

Wait until the top 2-3cm centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out before watering heavily. Water less in in the cooler month to replicate the tropical dry season.

Position

Bright indirect light and a humid position is great for these guys. They do best if provided with lots of light so don't hide them away in a dark hallway.

Managing growth

They will arrive at about 20cm tall x 40cm wide tall but will eventually climb over a metre tall and produce leaves that may reach 45cm long at which point they look insanely cool!

Greeting your Philodendron Squamiferum

These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.
