  • Philodendron Micans, also known as the Velvet-Leaf, is a wonderful vining houseplant that stands out among other Philodendron varieties. Native to the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, this plant has a trailing and vining nature, making it an excellent candidate for hanging baskets or climbing up supports. As it flourishes, its vines can grow to an impressive length. Philodendron Micans can also be grown as a tabletop plant, but it will need to be pruned regularly to keep it from becoming too leggy.

    This lovely houseplant has distinctive and velvety foliage. Its heart-shaped leaves resemble lush green cushions with a luxurious, plush texture. They are rich green in color and are adorned with delicate silver streaks.

    Philodendron Micans is an easy-care houseplant that can tolerate moderately low-light conditions, making it a perfect plant for beginners and people living in rooms with limited natural light.

    Philodendron Micans is a wonderful air-purifying houseplant, known to effectively remove toxins and impurities from the air, contributing to a healthier and more breathable indoor environment.

  • This plant tolerates moderate to low-light conditions, making it an ideal choice for rooms with limited sunlight. Bright, indirect light is preferable, but it can adapt to lower light settings.

    Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.

    A well-draining, peat-based potting mix works well for the Philodendron Micans.

    Maintain indoor temperatures between 65°F to 75°F. Avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50°F. Provide moderate humidity (about 50%). Mist the plant or use a humidity tray to increase moisture levels.

    During the growing season (spring and summer), feed it with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.

    Philodendron Micans, like many other plants in the Philodendron genus, contains calcium oxalate crystals. These crystals can be irritating if ingested or if they come into contact with the skin, leading to discomfort and mild symptoms. Therefore, it's important to keep this plant out of the reach of curious pets and small children.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
