Facts about your Philodendron Micans

The Philodendron gets it’s name from the Greek ‘philo’ (meaning love and affection) and ‘dendron’ (meaning tree). They are thought to originate from the Caribbean and South America, where it’s leaves are eaten by Monkeys! It’s an easy plant to look after.

Caring for your Philodendron Micans

Light - Your Philodendron Micans prefers dapped light without much direct sunlight but can survive in a low light environment.

Water - Water your Philodendron Micans about once a week, wait for the top part of the soil to dry out before you water it again. The Philodendron Micans really doesn't like having soggy roots so ensure it doesn't stand in water for any length of time.

Top Tip - If you would like Philodendron Micans to grow into a bushier wider shape rather than long vines, give it a trim just below the leaf and this should help shape your plant. If you like those long vines...just let it grow!

All our plants come with a physical care card, you can also see more information about how to look after your plant and our handy infographic care guides on our plant care page.

Our Green Packaging.

When you buy a plant from Canopy Plants you can be sure we have done our very best to keep your purchase green. Our packaging is sustainably sourced and 100% recyclable or compostable.

It wouldn’t be right to be cutting down trees to sell plants!

We don’t use any single use plastic.

When we send your plant to you the pot and roots will be wrapped in a bag that looks like it is made of plastic - it is actually a totally compostable potato starch bag! You can put it in your council compost bin. They are also suitable for home composting.

For fragile items we use potato starch protective peanuts, just wash them down the sink!

Peat free.

We only use peat free compost at our studio. 60% to 70% of our plants are grown in peat free compost and we are pushing to get that to 100% as soon as we can.

Our future totally plastic free.

Our dream is to run a 100% plastic free business, but this is very hard in the business of plants because all of our suppliers use plastic pots. We are working on a ‘Pass on Plastic’ scheme where we give you the option to make your order completely plastic free and we return the plastic pots to our suppliers.
