Full description and specifications

Philodendron atabapoense - endemic botanical species from Venezuela, the Amazonian jungle. The plant stands out for its impressive foliage - the leaves are narrow and long, with a unique silver-green appearance, glossy, their length reaching 70 cm.

Growth style: Climbing plant. In nature, it attaches itself to tree trunks - it tends to develop strong aerial roots.

This variety has nectar-producing glands on the back of the leaves. The nectar has the role of attracting ants in search of food - thus, the plant gains a supply of chemicals secreted by them, but also takes advantage of the aggressive way in which the ant colonies defend their territory and food source, protecting the philodendron from other harmful insects .
The specimens in stock may also have leaves with marks/scars/defects on the leaves.

The decorative bowl is not included in the price. 

Height with pots included: approx. 20 cm
