Family: Araceae
Origin: Columbia
Vine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Unlike many Philodendrons, this species creeps along the ground rather than climbing up a support. Magnificent, heart-shaped deep green leaves have bright white veins that stand out like a beacon. It is ideally suited as a specimen house or patio plant. True to the name, Philodendron gloriosum is a "glorious" plant with leaves reported to reach a size of 36 inches in it's native growing areas.

Philodendron gloriosum is not a climber, it runs! The species prefers to grow in loose, well draining soil. Many growers prefer what is known as a "jungle mix" which is easily created by mixing potting soil with Perlite and extra bark and some charcoal to "sweeten" the soil. Keep the soil damp, just not soaking wet. Shade to semi-shade.
