About Linnaei Kunth

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! ❄️

🪴 Soil

This is a pretty low maintenance plant. Doesn’t require a lot of light and is fine with 45-60% humidity. Doesn’t require frequent watering.

I love when the new leaves come in, the back is this beautiful burgundy. Then the back will turn green but there is still a slight burgundy tint.
