Philodendron billietiae x pastazanum is a unique, rare hybrid of Philodendron pastazanum and Philodendron billietiae. The foliage is a bit more narrow than that of Pastazanum and has distinct veining that it gets from the Billietiae parent.
This plant is a terrestrial grower so it does not climb, but instead crawls along the ground.
Philodendron billietiae x pastazanum care:
This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Allow the soil to dry out almost completely before watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water. Provide your new Philodendron with plenty of medium to bright indirect light.
Note: The older leaves on these plants are a little faded due to previous environmental conditions. The new foliage has no cosmetic issues. This plant will ship in its own box if purchased with other plants.

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!
