Thaumatophyllum spruceanum

This is a very interesting Aroid in the genus Thaumatophyllum. This is a recently discovered genus as these plants have a different growth pattern from its previous classification, Philodendron. This plant is known for its highly lobed & dissected foliage as you can see in the second photo of a large one we have at home! Each emerging leaf on these lil babies will get more and more lobed with maturity. Thaumatophyllum are known for developing a woody like trunk as it matures and has usually only 4-5ish leaves at a time. We highly recommend this really fun species & its been hard to track down at this stage in its life. 

Care

This aroid is a epiphyte meaning they grow upon trees. You'll really wanna use a nice barky mix for these has they have fleshy roots and love that aeration. We usually recommend watering every 10-14 days as they do not want to be soaking wet all the time. Bright filtered light is ideal for these. 

All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
