About Philodendron 'Glorius'

Philodendrons grow aerial roots that grip the bark of trees, allowing them to grow over 20 feet tall! Their leaves change shape as they climb and can grow larger than a dinner plate. Fossils show Philodendrons growing as far back as 30 million years ago when South America was still connected to Antarctica! ❄️

Easier than both the gloriosum and the melanochrysum, it is very tolerant of changing conditions and maintains growth steadily through the year.
It has parentage from both climbing and crawling philodendrons so do not be surprised if it takes either growth pattern. To confirm ID ask a more experienced grower for features to look for that distinguish it from philodendron gloriosum.
