Philodendron atabapoense produces elongated leaves that are metallic green on the front and purple on the back. The petioles are particularly elongated, which helps the leaves stretch out to receive light as it grows as an epiphytic plant in nature. It is truly a "must-have" for collectors. 


Attention! To check the moisture level of the substrate, inserting a finger into the pot to a depth of 2 cm is the best way to measure soil moisture. Therefore, if the substrate feels wet, refrain from watering for a day or two, and if it feels dry, water it.

Attention 2! When watering, consider the size of the pot where the plant is planted, the amount of substrate, and its aeration. In other words, do not pour a liter of water into a pot with a diameter and height of 12 cm, as this can drown the plant's roots. It's best to discard any excess water from the collector tray half an hour after watering.

Good luck with caring for it! And don't forget to give us updates about your plant, using the hashtag #greenmirrors and tagging @green.mirrors in your Instagram posts! We promise to share them in stories.
