Philodendron pastazanum (Grower’s Choice)
Philodendron pastazanum is a very rare heartshaped Philodendron that originates from a city called Pastasa in Ecuador. It’s commonly called Philodendron Pasta.
This plant is a crawler so the main stem or rhizome grows vertically and not horizontally. The petioles grow vertically from the stem and carry the leaves.
One of the most common mistakes in Philodendron pastazanum care is to bury the rhizomes in the potting medium.
Make sure to not overwater the plant particularly the rhizome. Water when the potting medium completely drys out. Make sure to let the water drain out after watering.
Use an airy potting medium such as coconut coir, perlite and orchid bark. The plants is an epithetic Aroid so it usually climbs trees and creates its home there. Using a heavy mix that doesn’t provide enough aeration doesn’t aid in optimal growth.
Fertilize in through spring, summer and fall with a slow release or houseplant fertilizer.
