Lacerum – Giant elephant ear shaped leaves have lobed edges and can get rather large. Green and glossy the leaves grow off of a slightly flatten stem or petioles. A beautiful aroid for any collection. These are very healthy, climbing tropical plants with well established root systems.
The plants shipping now may vary in size, form and color from the images above. This Philodendron in particular is grown and shipped in a 3″x 3″x 8″ tall pot with a rough wood totem. The totem allows for natural growth and a larger, healthier plant.
The growth rate and leaf color of Lacerum will vary greatly depending on soil type, sunlight, temperature and other factors. A few leaves are often trimmed prior to shipping to reduce transpiration and travel stress.
PHILODENDRON PLANT CARE
Lacerum are very easy to grow tropical plants that require little care indoors or out. Like other aroids, many species of Philodendron can be grown as houseplants, or outdoors in mild climates.
They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter and grow best when provided with a mossy post or burlap wrapped pole to climb. Philodendron plants can be grown in pots, hanging baskets or outdoors as a ground cover or beautiful tree wrap.
Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 55°- 80°F and in lower light conditions than other house plants. In the ground or up an arbor, philodendrons get big and are often unrecognizable from their potted juvenile state.
They add a wonderfully tropical accent to any well-lit space or cascading from your favorite hanging planter. In very cold zones a containerized Philodendron can be brought inside for the winter months. Be sure to avoid frost and freezing temperatures.
When you receive your new Philodendron, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water in the bottom and moving it to a shady location.
You can then add some mulch to keep your plant standing upright. The mulch will also supply nutrients while in storage. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Philodendron.
