Care Notes: Heavy water needs but a drought-tolerant plant. When watering, water heavily before letting the soil dry out again. 

*Philodendrons are toxic to both humans and pets as all parts of the plant contain calcium oxalate crystals. We deem this plant safe for use with the above animals, but the more risk-averse may wish to avoid it. For more information please visits the ASPCA list of Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants

Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly, removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

The plant pictured is in a 2.5" pot.

Such a cute little plant

Beautiful little plant. Very full and healthy. The variegation started to show when I placed it in brighter light. Sometimes they take a little time to show but it only took 2 days with this healthy little one.

So this plant is super rare, I’ve seen at a few nurseries but no cheaper than $60 (for a 4” pot, $80 for a 6”). This is a tiny 2” pot but I’m actually SUPER excited to watch it grow. It doesn’t have a lot of variegation yet but it’s not mature enough. But it came in SO HEALTHY AND SHINY! It looks so happy. Bunch of leaves coming in already too! I love it

Great find

Love the subtle variegation on the leaves. It arrived in great condition and has grown really quickly. The new leaves are so bright compared to the more mature ones - it adds a nice ombré effect to the plant overall. Very sturdy & a nice contrast to some of my more “flashy” plants. I bought it on a whim & couldn’t be happier!
