The name Philodendron atabapoense, an uncommon aroid, comes from its peculiar look. The plant’s young leaves are almost white until they turn a lighter green as they ripen, giving her year-round mixed green foliage.
Consider taking care of a Philodendron atabapoense by simulating its rainforest habitat. This can be achieved by giving it a moist atmosphere and a soil mixture that permeates quickly. Bamboo sticks or a moss stick, if you choose, can support the sluggish upward growth and serve the same purpose as larger plants or trees would in their natural habitat. During the warmer growing season, keep a Philodendron Squamiferum well-watered, allowing the top half of the soil to dry out before watering again.
