Philodendron rugosum

Ariods155
Specifications
Philodendron rugosum

Philodendron rugosum is both unique and rare. Its heart-shaped leaves look as if they have been painted with soft green brush strokes. They appear thick and leathery and have a crystal-like structure on the upper side. Because of this appearance, Philodendron rugosum is sometimes called “Naugahyde Philodendron" or "Pigskin Philodendron”.

Plant care

Philodendron rugosum is a relatively easy houseplant to cultivate in a bright position. It needs protection from cold wind and must be grown in well-drained, constantly moist soil. A potting mix of sphagnum moss, perlite and/or orchid bark will provide the necessary drainage.
