The Philodendron hederaceum, also known as the Velvet Leaf Philodendron or the Philodendron micans, is a sumptuous vining plant that can be left to trail elegantly over bookshelves, or climb at your leisure. The leaves uncurl in pale green, edged in pink, and then become a velvety, iridescent deep green with a deep purple-red color overleaf.
This plant is a tropical plant and thrives in a more humid environment with bright, indirect sunlight and requires water when the top inch of soil is dry.
