Philodendron Pastazanum is a very rare and extremely beautiful heart-shaped Philodendron. Their leaves are semi-glossy and have lighter coloured veins. The leaves can get quite large!
This plant is a crawler meaning that the main stem or rhizome is growing vertically and not horizontally. The petioles are growing vertically from the stem and carry the leaves. The rhizome should not be buried in soil and must stay on the soil surface as this is where the leaves are emerging. Burying it may lead to rot and a decaying plant.

More Information: Each of these plants have around 1-4 leaves with new growth actively happening. Some of the 1 leaf plants have just as big root systems and leaf size as the 4 leaf plants. They all are around the same size overall.

Our plants are shipped in their nursery pots as you see in the photos unless stated. Sometimes plants may have blemishes on the foliage. Blemishes won't affect the overall health or future growth of the plant; this is just the nature of plants sometimes. Plants ordered may differ slightly as not every plant is the same and the plant you receive may vary slightly in size, colour, and shape. Please take care when choosing your plants as some are poisonous to people and animals. Decorative pots and plants are all sold separately.
