Hey! I'm a Philodendron Squamiferum who goes by the name of "Red Bristle" because of the unusual red hairy bristles on my stems. I'm a slow growing Philodendron ideal for a shady spot. I'm a climbing tropical plant and I'm also know for my air-purifying qualities.
I'm in a 17cm pot and I'm 60cm in height from the base of my pot.
I like average warmth and to be watered well throughout growing season.
Love humidity too so give my leaves a mist now and then thanks.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I hate a bright spot so a shady spot would do fine for me although, I do produce more leaves in a medium light environment.
Water me well and allow the top half of my soil to dry out before watering again. If my leaves go yellow, this is a sign of over-watering. If my leaves go brown, I need a shower.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
Myself and my other Philodendrons are considered quite toxic sorry guys. Keep me away from pets and curious children.
