The Philodendron Gigas has stunning velvety leaves that are oblique in shape. They look a bit melancholy as they flow from base to apex. They are an interesting philodendron that vine in a small vertical column. This one is a slow grower and every leaf comes out with a reddish hue before hardening a deep green with brown outlines. If you like Micans, Melanochrysum, or other velvety plants, you'll love this plant.
