Philodendron verrucosum is characterized by large, heart-shaped leaves with a velvety texture. The leaves are dark green and have contrasting veining in white or light green, creating an impressive visual effect. The undersides of the leaves are brown, and the petioles are orange and "hairy," adding to the plant's uniqueness.

Attention! To check the substrate's humidity level, inserting your finger into the pot to a depth of 2 cm is the best method for measuring soil moisture. 

So, if you feel the substrate is wet, keep the sprayer away from it for one to two days, and if it feels dry, water it. 

Attention 2! When watering, consider the pot in which the plant is planted, as well as the amount of substrate and its aeration level. That is, do not pour a liter of water into a pot with a diameter and height of 12 cm, as you may drown the plant's roots. It is best to discard 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.
