Plant Bio

Philodendron Mayoi

Philodendron mayoi is native to the tropical rainforests of Brazil where it can be seen both climbing trees and scrambling over the ground. Noted for its deeply lobed leaves and red veins and petioles, it’s a hard-to-find aroid (relative of Pothos, Monstera, Spathiphyllum, and other popular houseplants) brings a touch of the tropics to any well-lit indoor space. Like most other Philodendrons, it appreciates bright light, average household temperatures, and average to above-average relative humidity levels. Water as the top half or so of the potting mix dries to the touch. If you’re in doubt about whether to water, it’s usually better to give it too little water than too much.

Note: Young plants may look similar to other split-leaf Philodendron varieties such as Xanadu or Selloum, but as it grows as a climber instead of being self-heading, like Xanadu or Selloum. You may also see this plant sold as Philodendron Tahiti.
