Philodendron Florida Ghost is a popular climbing indoor plant, well known for its colorful foliage. The leaves on this plant grow to resemble an outstretched hand. The defining characteristic of this cultivar is the white and mottled variegated leaves. As the leaves mature they fade to green.
Philodendron Florida Ghost is a climber so we recommend utilizing a coco pole or other support structure for it to attach to.
Philodendron Florida Ghost care:
This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow your plant to dry out almost completely between watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water. Provide it with bright indirect light to ensure that the new emergent leaves continue to appear a white or mint color.

If you allow Philodendron to climb, their foliage will usually get much larger the higher up they get. While this isn't true for all Philodendron species -- it is for most. We recommend a coco pole to really get your Philodendron growing!

The name Philodendron comes from the greek words "philo" (love or affection) and "dendron" (tree).
very happy with this starter ! it is sizing up nicely
The Florida ghost I ordered arrived alive despite fluctuating temps with shipment. It was cute but smaller, less mature, and not as full as the plant in the site photo or reviews (I realize no two plants are alike) unfortunately both of the largest leaves got bent during shipping.
Can't wait to make a little money off these.
