PHILODENDRON Squamiferum - Fiddle Leaf Philly

This member of the Philodendron family is a little strange-looking. The medium green leaves are shaped like a moose-head and the stems are red and fuzzy. The leaves originate from a slow-growing trunk.

LIGHT: This plant prefers medium to bright indirect light. This translates to a bright east or west window indoors or outdoors in partial shade.

TEMPERATURE: Keep this plant on the warm side. It prefers temperatures in the 65° - 75° but can stand extremes of 55° - 100°. This plant will go dormant if allowed to get too cold.

WATER: Do not over water. Give the plant a good drenching and allow the soil to become dry to the touch before watering again. Feed monthly with a balanced liquid plant food.

This specialty plant is very seldom available in 8" hanging baskets.
