About Burle Marx Variegata

Fossils show Philodendrons growing as far back as 30 million years ago when South America was still connected to Antarctica! ❄️

Grows fast even on pure grow light (60w) condition. Usually forget to water plant (before I discovered greg) and it still gave a lot of new leaves.
