Philodendron Scandens Micans

Philodendron Micans

This striking tropical plant is fairly new to house plant nurseries, and is garnering a lot of attention.Velvety heart-shaped leaves are brown green and shimmering.

Your plant will benefit from occasional pruning, which helps it to branch out and become fuller. Spring is the best time to cut it back. Use sharp pruners to avoid tearing the stems.

Water: Water thoroughly and allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Keep soil barely moist in winter. Yellow leaves are a symptom of overwatering. Provide good drainage.
