Click to see full-size image

Vine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Pick up only! Contact us for online order and shipping at your own risk. Leaves of this plant are very fragile and may be damaged during transportation.
An exquisite collectors plant originated from Columbia, yet so easy to grow. 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.

Leaves of this plant are very fragile and may be slightly damaged during transportation which does not hurt the plant. Trim as needed and more new leaves will grow quickly.

Pouteria sapota - Mamey Sapote Key West (Pantin), grafted, 3 gal

Click to see full-size image
What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

Mamey sapote cultivar Key West (Pantin) originates in Florida. It produces medium size fruit (15-40 oz, mid-late season. Flesh is pink to red, fiberless, excellent quality, contains 1 seed. The tree is tall. Ripening season - late summer.
A unique fruit with an interior texture that is both creamy and sweet, the vibrant salmon-colored flesh of the Pantin mamey sapote is unlike anything most people have ever tasted. The flavor is a combination of sweet potato and pumpkin with undertones of almond, chocolate, honey, and vanilla. The ovoid, medium-large fruit has a large center pit, similar to an avocado. This superior mamey sapote cultivar was discovered growing near a fire station in Key West, Florida. The seeds of this tree were believed to come from Cuba by way of 19th century dissidents who left the island at that time. The tree was originally called the Key West mamey sapote until it was selected and propagated by Eugenio Pantin in the early 1950s. The story goes that a Cuban émegré named Josefina Jimenez smuggled three mamey seeds into the US in her brassiere and gave them to Pantin, who grew them as seedling rootstocks, onto which he grafted

budwood of the Key West mamey tree. Pantin then proceeded to plant a small commercial orchard in Miami-Dade County, Florida. After his death in 1963, Eugenio’s son, Donald, took over the family business, and nurseryman, Lawrence Zill, who had recognized the potential of Eugenio’s prized cultivar, named it the Pantin mamey sapote.
Today, Pantin represents about 95 percent of the mamey sapotes produced on some 350 acres under cultivation in southern Florida.
