Variegated Philodendron billietiae has long been considered one of the holy grails of the aroid world. The specimen we have for sale has exceptional variegation, a great root system and is putting out growth quickly. Don't miss out! This is one of the most desired and rare plants out there. The first 6 photos of the plant were taken last week. The remaining photos were taken when the plant was repotted in mid October.
Philodendron billietiae produces long, strap shaped leaves with beautiful orange petioles. It grows as an epiphyte in nature and the elongated leaves and petioles help it to stretch out to receive light. It's really a must have for the collector.
Like most Philodendrons, this variety prefers moist but well-draining soil and some humidity. As it climbs, it should be staked or allowed to climb up moss poles. In higher humidity environments, numerous aerial roots will form which gives the plants a beautiful look.
Please note that due to the nature of variegation, each plant is a unique individual. There will be some variability from plant to plant and even from one leaf to another on the same plant. For this reason, we are unable to guarantee a specific amount of variegation especially younger plants.
