Philodendron caposportoanum

Philodendron caposportoanum is a mid size philodendron, with attractive velvety red streaked leaves. Wow!  This plant really has a lot going for it, even though it is larger. I'm only offering it as a cutting at this time, but it is easy to root and get growing in your terrarium.  If you have a larger terrarium and are looking for something good size to produce some larger leaves, this might be a good choice for you!  Leaves will start out at the four to five inch size, and heart or spade shaped, but as the leaves get larger they begin to develop a three lobed shape, and eventually wind up deeply lobed. In the juvenile stage, this plant reminds me a lot of verrucosum, but with more square shaped leaves, and it seems a bit hardier and less delicate.  Definitely a fast grower and will fairly quickly (with six months or so, given enough light) over run most terrariums, so be prepared to cut it back!   

I recieved the original cutting from a friend who thought it was verrucosum, and since then I've been trying to figure out what it was.  I recently was offering it as Philo hederaceum, but I've been shown the error of my ways, so to speak, and finding one of my plants with the beginnings of the lobes in the leaves for the first time convinced me that it definitely wasn't hederaceum...Below is a link to an amazing site all about different philodendrons, and the page for this plant...if you are interested in philodendrons and haven't checked it out, you should!
