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.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
