6" Amydrium zippelianum
Bright indirect light
Allow soil to dry almost completely between watering
Amydrium zippelianum is a distinctive aroid known for its palm-like foliage. These plants are native to Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Amydrium zippelianum prefers to climb so make sure to provide it with a coco pole or other support structure. If not allowed to climb, it will produce leafless runners until it finds something to attach itself to.
Caring for your Amydrium zippelianum is relatively simple, but they do require a little extra attention. This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your plant to dry out about halfway between watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water. Provide your plant with bright indirect light and something to climb to avoid it putting out leafless runners
Monstera, also referred to as "Swiss Cheese Plant", are a type of aroid native to many different countries in Latin America. Monstera can be found growing in its natural habitat in Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, etc.
In the wild, Monstera have a variety of growth habits. They can climb or spread as ground cover. If they are allowed to climb, Monstera leaves will become much larger and begin to fenestrate. They are semi-epiphytic.
Monstera can grow in low indirect light but prefer medium to bright indirect light. If grown in low light conditions their growth will slow.
They tend to be easy to care for and make a great addition to any houseplant collection.
