Philodendron gloriosum - Glorious Jungle Philodendron

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.
See Article about Philodendrons.

Epiphytes and Orchids Q&A

They just won't let go

Epiphytes by definition are plants that cling to another plant or tree, but do not get any of their nutrients from that plant or tree. They get everything they need from the air and the rain. One of the most well known epiphytes is of course the orchid. One of the common hanging epiphytes, at least in south Florida, is the plant commonly known as the Stags Horn Fern or Staghorn fern. You will find them hanging from large oak trees and can become quite large.
Other Epiphytes include the hoya family and many cactuses. Bromeliads are a common flowering epiphyte often seen climbing on and around large trees. If you are looking for something a little unusual that might make a great conversation piece, consider the Nepenthes family also known as the pitcher plant. These plants fit into the epiphyte family because they get their nutrients from the insects they capture in their pitchers and not from fertilizers in the ground.

Orchids

Although the most well known epiphytes are probably the orchid, not all orchids are epiphytes. There are wild orchids that fit into the epiphyte family and there are others such as the ground orchids that are terrestrial, meaning they grow from the ground and that is where they get their nutrients. Another plant with the orchid name is the Bauhinia family also known as Orchid trees. These are easy and fast growing and have a flower that resembles the orchid.
