Similar to the Monstera the leaves are large with deep fenestrations that look as if each leaf is made up of fingers. The extra ruffled edges make the plant appear as if it's made of fabric. Tolerating low to bright light and its affinity for growing bushy, the Philodendron works well in those dark awkward corners of your home or office.

Is the Philodendron ‘Little Hope' the right plant for me?
Philodendron plants are fairly easy to care for. They prefer the top 2” of the soil to dry in between watering as they are quite susceptible to stem rot. Place your plant in a location with bright, indirect light or filtered bright light and watch it grow! The large leaves are absolutely stunning but need a regular dusting to ensure it can photosynthesize at its optimal levels.
Pet Friendly: Unfortunately, Philodendrons are not pet-friendly.
