Philodendron sp. 'Fuzzy Petiole' is truly a collector's aroid. It's thought to be a specific form of P. nangaritense, but we're still learning about this plant's place in nomenclature! This rare philodendron has a big surprise for you when it grows up! Its leaves are going to go through a change as well as its stems! This aroid has beautiful, slightly velvet, bright green leaves, but it's mainly grown for its odd petioles (the stalk that connects leaf to stem). The petiole is covered in a fine fuzz that becomes more pronounced and vibrantly red on mature specimens. The Philodendron fuzzy Petiole is a beautiful plant that is native to South America. It has large, heart-shaped leaves that are covered in tiny hairs. The leaves are a deep green color and have a velvety texture. It is an evergreen plant, meaning it will keep its leaves year-round.
