Philodendron 'Whipple Way'

Family: Araceae, Subfamily: Aroideae, Tribe: Philodendreae, Genus: Philodendron.

Philodendron ‘Whipple Way’ a sport from Philodendron imbe, has very pale (white) slightly variegated leaves and is a very slow growing philodendron, but in my experience well worth the effort. The white foliage tends to turn to a pale green as they mature, (This is because the leaves have tiny chloroplasts scattered throughout the leaves which grow larger as the leaves age). providing more energy to get the plant growing more vigorously. It’s very important that you don’t remove the older leaves once they turn greenish.  Philodendron ‘Whipple Way’ is not for the novice collector, it is difficult to grow and must be cared for regularly. This is a very healthy, climbing tropical plant with a well-established root system. The growth rate and leaf colour of ‘Whipple Way’ will vary greatly depending on soil type, light, temperature and other factors.

Plant Preference: Semi-Shade, Full Shade, Likes moist but well-drained soil. Provide ample water and organic fertilizer every 2 to 3 weeks during the growing season and cut watering back in winter. Do not cut back old or  mature leaves.
