The name Philodendron is derived from the Greek words "philo" (love) and "dendron" (tree). This classic plant is one of the most popular indoor plants. In addition to being easy to maintain, the Philodendron is an air-purifying plant.

The leaves of the Philodendron verrucosum are intriguing to see! The green leaves have light veins that get a golden glow in the light. The stems have light green hairs. This Philodendron is found in the jungles of Ecuador. The Philodendron verrucosum divides itself over the ground until it finds a tree on which it climbs and grows. With support, the plant can therefore reach considerable heights.

There are around 400 species of Philodendrons, a member of the Arumea family (Araceae). The plant was first described in 1644, but only got its official name in 1829. The Philodendron family is a large one, with plants in various shapes, sizes and colours. Philodendrons can be divided into two basic categories: climbing and non-climbing plants. The non-climbing plants are sometimes found high in trees in nature. If a seed in the cavity of a high branch germinates, the plant manages to provide itself with sufficient nutrients and water with its roots.

The Philodendron can be slightly toxic to pets and small children, so make sure that they cannot reach the plant.

The Philodendron is particularly effective in helping to purify the air that we breathe. To take advantage of the air-purifying properties, you can place at least one Philodendron on every 10 m² and let it do what it naturally does.

The Philodendron is sometimes confused with Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) plants, but you can see the difference in the leaves. They are similar in shape, but the leaves of Pothos are usually coloured with yellow or white speckles.

The Philodendron verrucosum needs a temperature of 17 to 25℃ during the day, this may drop to 15℃ during the night. It is better not to put this plant in a room with a temperature below 15℃. Philodendron verrucosum grows best in shade or partial shade. Older leaves naturally turn yellow. However, if you see several yellow leaves at the same time, this may be an indication that the plant gets too much direct sun.

The Philodendron needs more water in summer than in winter. In summer, when the plant is growing well, you can keep the soil slightly moist. Usually water is given twice a week. Always check the soil to see if it is not too wet; if that is the case then wait a little while with watering. Give new water when the top layer of the soil feels dry. At colder temperatures, the plant needs less water, otherwise it can rot. At warm temperatures the water will dry up faster. Hanging leaves can indicate that the plant gets too much or too little water, but that they must revive once the problem has been solved.

Philodendrons are tropical plants, so higher humidity will promote lush growth and shiny foliage. The Philodendron verrucsoum tolerates lower humidity levels, but by regularly spraying the plant, it can thrive. Keep in mind this does not apply to all Philodendrons. Brown leaf tips usually indicate that the humidity is too low.

Philodendron Verrucosum can be fertilized with a light fertilizer every two weeks in the summer months. Fertilization is hardly necessary in the autumn and winter. This is because the growth is slower and the plant consumes less nutrients.

Even though this Philodendron does not grow particularly fast, as with all plants, it is recommended to repot the plant once every few years. A larger pot allows the roots to grow further and some new substrate (we use peat) also gives the plant extra nutrients. It’s best to repot before the new growing season (spring), the plant then has enough time to recuperate.
