Philodendron Scandans 'Micans'

A truly beautiful plant, the Philodendron Micans features velvety deep-green leaves, which shimmer between deep purple and rusty orange in the light. No wonder it's name, 'Micans', translates to "glittering, twinkling, flashing" — pretty magical indeed!

Fun Fact: In the wild, the adult leaves of the Philodendron Scandans can measure 4 to 16 inches in length. Without venturing to the rain forests of Central and South America, it's a leaf size few of us "house plant" parents will ever see. A fully grown specimen from the forest will also lose that signature velvet texture, making it an even greater departure from the small version we know as a houseplant.

Geography: Central America

Keep these velvet leaves healthy with bright indirect sun. It will tolerate lower light, but the rusty, deep burgundy that the lustrous leaves are known for will lose their vibrancy in lower light. Allow the top layer of soil to dry slightly before watering.
