Philodendron verrucosum "Purple" Cutting

A new form of P. verrucosum!  At least it is new for me! I was excited to be able to obtain a nice cutting of this last summer, and so far it has done very well for me.  This is another dwarf form, and the main thing that seems to set it apart from the other forms of verrucosum I keep here is its color, it tends towards a darker bluish color.  Emerging leaves still sport the beautiful reddish orange markings as you can see in the photos, but the mature leaves are noticably darker than regular verrucosum.  I've noted that some of the leaves do tend to turn a little brighter, but these were usually leaves that got pretty close to high light areas, if kept in fairly subdued lighting, or further from the lights, the color tends to stay darker. 

It does seem to grow a bit more slowly than normal verrucosum, but it is pretty steady for me in terrarium settings, producing a leaf a month or so.  As far as its dwarf status goes, I've had it for several months now, and it is clearly smaller than the normal dwarf form of verrucosum, staying around 3 inches in my tanks.  

For the moment I'll be offering cuttings, which will be three leaves or two leaves and a leaf unfurling.  All of my experience with it so far indicates that it should be an easy plant to get started, as long as the below guidelines are followed! 

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.  

 

Plant Shipping info! 

Many of our plants will be eligible for our FedEx 2nd Day Flat rate shipping.  We are delighted to be able to offer this service, as we feel it is a big improvement over Priority Mail, and only a couple of bucks more.  Note that you can change your shipping choice to another service option if you like, and in some cases this may be needed for safety.  Please keep in mind that depending on weather conditions you may need to have your plants held for pickup at a local FedEx location, or have your order shipped via overnight service.  We may contact you and suggest one of these options if we feel that your shipment is not able to be shipped safely with your selected form of shipping.  While the cart defaults to the flat rate shipping, you can change this in the check out process.  

Live arrival guarantee- Plants are guaranteed to arrive alive and in good condition if temps along shipping route and at your location are between 40 and 80 degrees.  If temps are going to be outside of these parameters, especially at your location on the day of delivery, we highly recommend having the package held for pickup at your local FedEx station.  Either input this address as the "ship to" address, or ask and we use your home address to find the nearest appropriate FedEx location.  

In the event of an issue please contact us as soon as possible.  Replacement is the sole remedy for live arrival issues, shipping for replacement order is the responsibility of the buyer.
