General Information and Care: Philodendron chinchamayense is a species that was found in several areas of South America. This is one of the more exquisite Philodendron species that Glass Box Tropical offers. The leaves are typically 1-4" in length in a terrarium, though when grown outside of a terrarium the leaves can reach up to 10" in length. Each leaf is very narrow and a brilliant bright green. This species does best when allowed to grow up a background or a piece of wood. Overall this is an excellent terrarium plant that will not take over a tank like many other aroid vines tend to.
