Scientific Name: Philodendron squamiferum poepp.
Synonyms: Red Bristle Philodendron

  • Stunning evergreen foliage
  • Peculiar red bristly stems
  • Pretty Easy Care, Ideal for beginners
  • Prefers climbing making it  great for a Moss pole
  • Has Air Purifying Properties

The Red Bristle Philodendron is one of those special collector plants that have become more accessible in recent years. It's easy to understand why. The attractively shaped leaves with curious red bristly stems really make these stunners stand out in the crowd.

Philodendron houseplants are among the easiest plants to care for, making them perfect for the amateur plant collector who wants to branch out into new areas. The foliage will grow exponentially in size if they receive good filtered light, is mounted to a moss pole, and is allowed to climb up it. Although they also trail, making them an attractive colour contrast on a shelf or hanging display.

A tropical species, the Red Bristle Philodendron likes humidity and warmth. They can tolerate lower humidity levels and still thrive, though warmth is of utmost importance to keep them happy. The best way to encourage Philodendron growth is to allow it to reach dryness before watering it.

Not only will this really pretty plant look great in any interior, but it will also provide you with a boost of extra fresh air, as they’re known to be relatively good air purifiers. An all-around must-have!

Please note: If consumed, this Philodendron can be toxic.

Follow this instruction to keep your Philodendron happy and healthy.

Light: Medium to bright filtered light.
Water: Allow the soil to dry out two-thirds between watering. Prevent prolonged dryness.
Humidity: Average room humidity is sufficient, though higher can benefit your plant greatly.
Fertilizer: Use a well-balanced organic fertilizer once a month from Spring through Summer.
