A personal HoM favourite: P. gigas are known for their slender and exquisitely velvet leaves.
Endemic to Panama, its juvenile leaves resemble Philodendron melanochrysum. As they morph into their final adult form the difference is clear. Do not underestimate their potential to grow to an impressive size given the optimal conditions - this species is a stunner.
Bright indirect light, no direct sun as foliage burns easily.
Water only when top inch is dry. Do not allow to dry completely.
Keep humidity medium to high.
Pro tip: Very strong climbing habit, so a totem is recommended for full-sized foliage. Maintain moisture around adventitious roots to promote attachment. Feed regularly.
Orders are shipped Mondays to avoid weekend delays.
*Cold weather advisory: your order will go out as scheduled if the overnight low temperature is above five degrees. Orders placed for locations with temperatures below five degrees will not ship until temperatures allow.
We ship in secure, reinforced boxes to prevent movement and damage. Foliage is wrapped carefully in kraft paper and medium is secured firmly with tissue.
