Philodendron verrucosum "Dwarf"

When I first received cuttings of the "Dwarf" form of verrucosum, I was somewhat skeptical, especially since it was visually pretty much identical to the normal form of the plant.  However by now I've had this plant for a couple of years, and it is pretty obvious that it truly is a dwarf or smaller form of the oh so popular philodendron verrucosum.   Of course one of the downsides to the normal form of P. verrucosum, is that if you have a larger terrarium with good light, the leaves will get fairly large eventually, making it somewhat impractical for normal terrariums.  This dwarf form really does stay much smaller, with leaves running around three to four inches for me, even after many months. 

Please be aware that this is not a "house plant".  P. verrucosum requires fairly high humidity, and will not do well at all in normal household humidity, so some sort of enclosure or humidified space will be required.  

This offering is for a potted plant, established in a 2 inch pot for several weeks.  It has three leaves and a fourth developing.  It is significantly more leggy than the plant in the photo....in fact I've found that this form of verrucosum often does this for me, I cut a nice looking cutting, pot it, and it does poorly, but then after a period it comes back and puts out new growth....the old or original leaves die off leaving the new leaves on a somewhat longer stem.  I've tried more light, and less light, but while I do great with normal verrucosum, the dwarf form seems a bit more tempermental!
