General Information and Care: Philodendron Mini Midget is a species we found in the back corner of a nursery in Florida in the summer of 2016. From some research online it does not seem to be widely spread, or have much if any documentation. It is definitely different from any other Philodendrons we currently keep though. As the name implies, it is a relatively small species. The leaves are typically about 2-3 in length and only about Â½ in width. They are held onto the stem with a very short petiole. Typically this species grow smore as a vine and will slowly spread and grow up your hardscape or over your substrate. This species has proven to be very easy to grow for us, and rather well behaved, not growing too fast and getting out of control like some species tend to in a terrarium.
