Philodendron pedatum - One of our favourites! The coolest thing about this climbing philodendron has got to be its leaf shape. Its leathery leaf blades almost look as though they were cut with scissors. The leaves are so solid, deep green and beautifully formed. This plant also grows attractive aerial roots.
Light: Bright indirect light.
Potting mixture: Potting Soil + Cocopeat + Organic manure/Vermicompost at equal parts and 5% perlite.
Water: Let the potting mixture dry half way between watering. This plant is an epiphyte and can handle drying out. Water the plant once in 3-5 days depending on the light intensity. Over watering results in root rot of the plant.
• Considerations: This plant can't handle much direct sunlight. Extra humidity will help the leaves grow big and healthy. Keep away from heating/AC vents and drafty locations.
DO'S AND DONT'S AFTER RECEIVING THE PLANT:
- Do not re-pot the plant immediately after receiving. We’ve taken care of that with better pot and rich soil.
- Check for the moisture level once you receive the plant. If its optimally moist do not water the plant. If the potting mixture is half dry then water the plant.
SHIPPING AND DELIVERY INFO:

The packing was too good. Shopping plants at PlantWagons has been my best experience. Would definitely recommend this site.
Loved the services and the condition of Plants.
Pedatum is one of my favorite philos, for its glossy and beautifully shaped foliage - so glad I found it here!
I shop a lot for plants online, so I know from experience to expect a bit of transit damage to say the least, when plants arrive from great distances in a closed package. However, shopping at plants wagons has been my best experience so far - despite the negligent handling my delivery personnel, the plants arrived in pristine condition, with no damage done.
Look forward to ordering more plants as soon as the new collection is up!
I can confidently that this is the best plant shopping experience for me online. The pedatum sent was a good size and it was packed so well that not a grain of soil was spilt. Love the personal note attached. The customer service was prompt . Worth every penny I spent , which in itself is much better than most plant websites.
