I am totally in love with the Philodendron squamiferum–it’s a hairy Philodendron variant. It’s a super-beautiful plant; it can grow really big, has uniquely shaped, pointy leaves, and fuzzy, red hair on its stems! It’s also easy to keep and exceptionally resilient. Mine used to live among several other plants that were affected by thrips and mealybugs, but the Philodendron squamiferum always remained pest-free. It also continuously regrows its leaves,

As part of my plant routine, I wipe the leaves regularly with a damp cloth. This keeps the leaves shiny. I also support the Philodendron with a rope along which it can grow up to the ceiling.
