Philodendron verrucosum are hemiepiphytic with setose (bristled) petioles. They inhabit rainforests of Central and South America. They're a climbing Philodendron with large heartshaped leaves that are almost iridescent. These plants require a little more care than other Philodendrons -they need fertilising more often and would love the support of a sphagnum moss pole.
