information: Philodendron Micans is one of the most
colorful of the vining type Philodendrons.
Your "Velvet-leaf" Philodendron can be placed in
filtered light or an area that is dimly lit. If placed in to low
of lighting your plant may loose it's velvety appearance. Micans
is usually only found in small containers and may need watered
twice per week. Allow the soil to dry on the surface between
waterings. This variety of Philodendron grows slowly compared to
other varieties. Feed bi-monthly with a balanced plant food. If
your plant becomes leggy... just trim it back to the desired
length. The cuttings can be easily rooted in water or vermiculite.
Philodendron micans is usually only available as 3" and 4"
starter plants. Occasionally they can be found in 6" or
8" hanging baskets.
