Philodendron Florida Ghost
The plant seen in the photo is the plant you will get when purchasing from this listing
We don't think this plant needs an introduction at all.
We all know the Philodendron Florida Ghost, with its incredibly colour changing leaves!
The leaves of the Florida Ghost emerge white and then fade down to green gradually, passing through a beautiful mint green phase!
This plant will only produce white leaves with high light, if it is not getting enough light you will notice the new leaves come in more minty, which to some people if more desirable than the white leaves... hey, we're not here to judge.
This Philodendron loves a airy soil.
It loves high humidity, between 60%-90% is ideal!
Philodendrons do not like to dry out completely between waterings, but also do not like soggy feet! Gotta find the right balance for your environment.
The soil our plants arrive to you in has been specifically created for them!
We mix all of our soil and therefore you do not need to worry about repotting for a good while.
We certainly do not recommend repotting straight away, your new plant needs time to arrive and settle into your home, its new environment. Repotting straight away can cause a great deal of stress to the plant, please wait at least two weeks after arrival before repotting your plant.
All of our plants arrive in eco friendly plant pots.
We currenlty use two different types of pots, your plant will arrival in either a coco coir pot or a rice husk pot.
Both pots are biodegradable and can be reused. Once the pot has reached the end of its life they can be put into your compost bin!
How long have we had this plant?
Here at Perky Plants, we want to be open and honest about how long our plants are with us before they move on.
We keep all of our plants for atleast 4 weeks after they arrive with us.
This gives the plant time to settle into life in the UK, to settle into its new pot and substrate, to acclimate to a similar environment it will be in once it arrives with you.
Some plants hang out here with us for longer than 4 weeks, if a plant isnt ready to move on we're not going list it on our site!
This Philodendron Florida Ghost has been with us since November 2020, a lot longer than 4 weeks! We believe it is finally ready to go off and start settling into its new home with you!
