Philodendron Squamiferum



We know the name Squamiferum is quite a mouthfulthankfully this Philodendron has couple of nicknames! Also known as the Hairy Philodendron or the Red Bristle Philodendron, it’s dubbed for its standout fuzzy red stems. With five evenly patterned lobes, its leaves give a similar impression to those on Monstera varieties. In its natural environment, the Hairy Philodendron can climb up trees and into the leafy tropical canopies. As a houseplant, it will happily trail or climb depending on the setting you prefer to provide.
