Philodendron MicansRegular price $34.95 Save $-34.95
When it comes to common names these lovely plants have quite a few — the most common are Micans and Velvet Leaf Philodendron, but just wait until you see the botanical name. The Philodendron hederaceum var. hederaceum (nope, we did not accidentally add “hederaceum” twice) may seem a redundant name, but whatever name you use, this is a gorgeous plant.
The leaves unfurl as a chartreuse color edged in pink and then become a velvety, iridescent deep green with a deep purple-red color on the back side that looks like shades of rusty orange when the light shines through. You can grow these as a trailing vine or you can train them to grow up a moss pole, but either way they will look amazing!
