From afar the large, heart shaped foliage of Philodendron gloriosum promotes a lush and exotic accent in an interior; up close the effect is heightened due to the superb veining and the wonderfully velvety texture of the leaves which shimmer in light. Other members of the family have a vine-like habit, but this collectable variety is unusual in having a crawling habit.


The name for the philodendron family roughly translated means tree loving. In its native Colombia, stolon (like the runners on strawberries) run along the ground sending out roots which then embed themselves. It very rarely flowers out of its native habitat.
