Ecuador Philodendron

Native to Central America, Ecuador, and Peru, this plant has velvety heart-shaped leaves (wine stain on the reverse) that can grow up to 2ft in diameter. Vigorous climber that will thrive on a burlap pole. Put it in well drained but moist, rich organic mix (stay away from wet, mucky or dry, sandy soils) and fertilise sparingly tri-annually. Can take lower light conditions than other house plants and direct sunlight will scorch leaves.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Position near to a window where direct sunlight cannot touch the foliage. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. If the stems are long and leggy without plenty of leaves, the plant is most likely to be receiving insufficient light.

 

Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Cuttings require warm conditions. In summer, take stem cuttings or air layer the climbing varieties. With non-climbing varieties, shoots taken from the base of the stem can be used as cuttings.
