Care Notes: The wide leaves of this plant can easily burn when exposed to full sun. Avoid direct sunlight for extended periods of time. 

*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.

A bargain

This is a very large and full plant for the price. I have it on a half-wall about five feet from an east-facing window where it is getting a good amount of light. Many new growth points as well. It will be a long, trailing philo in no time.

Very satisfied.

The plant is a great space filler and visually pleasing. My geckos also enjoy to climb and hide between the large leaves, which are more than strong enough to take the abuse my cresteds give out.
