Philodendron Verrucosum


This is such a beautiful philodendron and I can’t believe it grows so well for me now. This wasn’t always the case unfortunately. The poor plant was hit with spider mites and thrips during the winter and it died all the way down to the dirt.

I was going to just give up on it but I threw it in the grow tent and it started to grow a little stem out of the dirt a couple of days later. Now, in September of 2019, it already has a hairy stem and the leaves are growing one after another. If you decided that you want to grow this plant and you can get your hands on one then I recommend heat in the 70’s with humidity and 12 hours of light per day. I simply have a T-5 florescent light with 2 bulbs and a fan for circulation in an Agromax Mother’s Keeper grow tent. And don’t forget the temperature/humidity monitor to help make sure the environment in the grow tent is appropriate for your plants. You should know that this plant will grow outside of a grow tent because it did for me but you have to keep a close eye on it because the spider mites and thrips absolutely love it.
