We love a plant that keeps things easy, especially when it comes to the crazy names! The Philodendron ‘Fuzzy Petiole’s’ claim to fame is, of course, it’s oddly textured petiole. While it’s origins are a bit hazy, collectors have been fawning over this variety for quite some time. If you have other philodendron’s in your collection you can expect much of the same from this variety, and it does especially well in those trendy Instagram plant cabinets!
