Philodendron florida beauty #1
Philodendron, belongs to the plant family Araceae. It is mostly native to the neotropical rainforests of Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean islands, tropical South America and the US state of Florida. The rare Philodendron florida Beauty scores high on one hand with its deeply incised unique leaf shape and on the other hand with its beautiful variegation. This can draw various patterns in shades of cream and green on the rich green leaves. It is still barely noticeable on new leaves, whereas it becomes more intense as the leaf hardens. In young plants, the leaves tend to be oval and elongated, while the serrated leaf shape typical of the plant develops only over time. So it is easy to tell whether the Philodendron florida Beauty is a young plant or not.
Rare Philodendron florida beauty feels most comfortable with bright, indirect light and increased humidity, as is typical for tropical plants. Temperatures between 20° and 25° Celsius are optimal and the substrate should always be loose and permeable. Once the plant has grown a little larger, it needs a vine stick to show it the way when climbing. This will provide stability and healthy growth. Philodendron does not like bubble dryness or waterlogging. Therefore, before watering again, the first centimeters of the substrate should be dried. How often you then actually have to water depends largely on light, humidity, the size of the plant and that of the pot.
