Product Overview

About Philodendron Micans

This rare and unusual philodendron has trailing, heart-shaped leaves with a fine point and a velvet look and feel that hang elegantly from blush red or green stems. The top of the leaves are a mixture of fark and lighter green colours that are split up by shallow ridges which branch off from a central strip that runs down the length of the leaf. On the underside, the leaves a contrasting purple, red colour that shimmers in the light and creates a fantastic display that would look great in a scandi or contemporary styled room.

How much light does a Philodendron need?

Philodendron’s will look after themselves if their basic needs are met You should put your plant in a bright space with indirect light. Older leaves will turn yellow as they age, but if you find a lot of yellowing leaves then the plant is receiving too much light. A Philodendron that is not receiving enough light will become leggy and the leaves will grow sparsely

Will my Philodendron climb?

As the leaves age, they will naturally try to climb upwards. To help the plant, support it with a moss pole or plant stake to get an even more impressive display.

How often should I water a Philodendron?

You should only water when the top inch of soil is dry Philodendrons only require light watering and the leaves will begin to droop if you are over or under watering

How much humidity does a philodendron need?

This tropical houseplant loves a humid environment like a bathroom or kitchen, but it is perfectly happy in standard humidity if the leaves are misted regularly. Doing so will really draw out the glossy and luxury look of the leaves.

Should I feed my Philodendron?

If you want to get the best-looking leaves and healthy growth you should feed your philodendron fortnightly during the spring and summer with a diluted liquid fertilizer.

Right Packaging

As an online plant store, we recognise the need to protect the environment and have thought very carefully about the packaging we use and where we buy it from to make sure your plants turn up in good condition with the least impact on the environment.

When it comes to packaging, our philosophy takes the following into account:

Sustainability - all of the packaging we used can be fully reused, recycled or composted. And, in the unfortunate event that it does make its way to landfill, it will biodegrade, leaving nothing but humus behind.

The right packaging for the job - we want our plants to arrive in perfect condition so we have designed packaging that holds your plants safely and securely inside the box, meaning they turn up in great condition.

What's our packaging made from?

Our outer packaging is made from corrugated cardboard. This cardboard can withstand the weight of your plants and is not susceptible to moisture so will remain strong and stable until your plants are delivered and you’re ready to unpack them. Not only that, it will keep your plants safe and undamaged in transit.

As well as being perfect for keeping your plants safe, corrugated cardboard is easy to recycle and is in keeping with our commitment to ensure we use the more environmentally friendly packaging as possible.

Packaging sustainability

We have chosen to partner with a packaging supplier that has the same environmental values as us. All packaging uses 85% recycled material and is 100% recyclable and compostable. This commitment to the environment is backed up by a Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation and ISO 14001 accreditation for their environmental management system.
