Description

The Anthurium Podophyllum or ‘Lacy Plant’ is an incredibly rare aroid that we’re so excited to finally be able to offer our customers. Don’t let these baby specimens fool you- they quickly grow into something slightly resembling a staghorn fern under the right conditions. The dramatic leaves grow incredibly large with several fronds and fenestrations giving the ultimate jungle look. Since these plants are rare and an investment we don’t recommend them for new plant owners. For our seasoned growers be sure to keep it in fertile, chunky soil that remains evenly moist. You don’t want to allow this plant to dry out all the way and you want to provide it with bright indirect light & high humidity in order to begin seeing mature leaves
