Philodendron serpens is a distinctive and intriguing species within the Philodendron genus, notable for its unique features and adaptability as a houseplant. This species is particularly admired for its velvety, heart-shaped leaves and the conspicuous, hairy petioles which give it a distinct texture and appearance. The name 'serpens,' meaning 'creeping' or 'crawling' in Latin, might hint at its growth habit, which could be either climbing or spreading, typical of many philodendrons. Native to tropical environments, Philodendron serpens thrives in warm, humid conditions with indirect light, making it well-suited for indoor cultivation. The plant's care involves well-draining soil, consistent watering to maintain soil moisture without waterlogging, and occasional fertilization to promote healthy growth. With its striking foliage and unusual hairy petioles, Philodendron serpens is a compelling addition to any indoor plant collection, offering a touch of the exotic and a unique visual and tactile experience.

Healthy seedling potted up in sphagnum moss and perlite. Not a seedling that was just stuck in a 4" pot. The roots are well established.

Very Happy!

I am very happy with my purchase. Both plants were a good value, healthy, larger than I expected, packaged with exceptional care and arrived ahead of schedule. I highly recommend this company and would give a greater than 5 stars!!


Seedling, as stated. However a little too much damage to it for me to be OK with. Not sure how it happened as there was no damage to the box itself.


Cute little seedling, love it! Will be buying more!
