Gloriosum (dark form)
This Philodendron Gloriosum looks a bit like the plant you probably already know or even have at home, but this beauty is the 'dark' variant! She has the beautiful heart-shaped leaves that we know from the regular Gloriosum, but her velvety leaves are much darker! Her veins are more refined, which makes them stand out beautifully on the dark leaf. The young leaves start out with a pink tint, which slowly fades to its amazing dark colour. This Gloriosum variant is a very rare find, so don't hesitate to add this unique houseplant to your growing home.

Her fragile appearance is deceiving, because she is quite a tough lady. She thrives on high humidity. Around 80% is perfect, but from 60% humidity or higher she is happy too. Water her as soon as the top of the potting soil feels dry and make sure you are a little sparing with the amount of water you give this pretty one. She does not like to be left with wet feet. The Gloriosum is known as a slow grower, so it is important to be a little patient with this plant. Which is totally worth it, because you will be rewarded with breathtaking leaves!
