Philodendron Gloriosum, also known as Anthurium Gloriosum or Velvet Philodendron, is a non-climber and a slow performer with heartleaf-shaped green velvety foliage and pale to striking white veins. It has a crawling rhizome that likes to be partly exposed out of the soil as it moves horizontally across the ground. That being said, with foliage like this most people are happy to wait.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Gloriosums are easy to propagate via stem cutting or air layering. When potting up, make sure the rhizome is not completely under the soil, as this can lead to root rot. And be patient, it can take up to a month for leaves to unfurl sometimes.

Care Guide

How to take care of Philodendron Gloriosum

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Allow the top quarter of the soil to dry before watering again. This usually takes about 3 - 4 days in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They will do well in average humidity environments but will appreciate a little bit of humidity if provided, give them a mist daily or get a humidifier.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
