Philodendron domesticum variegated

(1 customer review)


Meet the Philodendron domesticum: a rare and beautiful variegated plant that’s perfect for adding a touch of luxury to your home.

Have you ever heard of the Philodendron domesticum? If not, don’t worry—you’re not alone! This rare species of philodendron originates from the Amazon Rainforest, where it grows along riverbanks in the wild and can be found only at altitudes of between 350 and 1000 meters above sea level.

Despite its rarity, however, this beautiful and lush plant makes an excellent addition to your home if you’re looking to add some style and elegance to your décor—here’s everything you need to know about it!

What is a philodendron domesticum variegated?

A philodendron is a relatively easy-to-care-for houseplant that can add bold color, texture, and visual interest to any space. However, most varieties come in green leaves only, while some have darker shades of green as well.

This is why it’s so exciting when we encounter an especially rare find: The philodendron domesticum variegated! Also known as Pink Splash or Variegatum Varieties ‘Pink Splash’ & ‘Variegatum’ (usually used interchangeably), these special varieties boast pink striped leaves instead of plain ol’ green ones, making them twice as awesome as they already are.

How does this particular kind of philodendron grow?

The philodendron domesticum is actually one of many species in a large family of plants, most native to tropical climates around North America, South America, and Africa.

All philodendrons are excellent houseplants and can grow in almost any temperature or light environment—as long as it doesn’t dip below 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) at night, because philodendrons aren’t cold-tolerant plants.

The young leaves grow on vines, which eventually become stems with small leaf clusters; mature leaves are oval-shaped and grow either individually or in pairs at different parts along these stems.

Potting of Philodendron domesticum variegated

Philodendrons are relatively easy plants to maintain, but they do require specific conditions in order to thrive. The soil should be kept slightly moist at all times—wet enough that water drips out of your hand when you squeeze it, but not so wet that water comes streaming out after you’ve let go. But don’t worry about keeping track of these conditions; there are lots of guides available for potted plants—including ours, which you can find here —that explain exactly how often you should be watering your philodendron in any given month or season.

Origin of Philodendron Domesticum 

In 1982, a very special, rare type of philodendron was discovered in Brazil by botanist Mark Twitty and it quickly became one of his favorite plants he’d ever found during his travels. The philodendron was such an exciting find, Mark sought out for help classifying it at Kew Gardens—the largest botanical garden in Europe. After much deliberation and examination, researchers concluded that it was in fact a unique variety; they named it the Philodendron domesticum variegatum (commonly known as Phil) because its patterning resembled designs made famous on classic Greek urns. It’s since been determined that only 10 people in all of England have grown these wonderful beauties!

Why is it called domesticum?

When botanists label plants with fancy Latin names, they also generally include a reference (or common) name in parentheses. The common name for Philodendron domesticum is tree philodendron, which I think is great, but obviously not as cool as rare and beautiful variegated plant.

Still, it turns out that most botanists call it by its common name—but there are exceptions! Most people don’t know about them because they’re usually used by scientists working on smaller projects who don’t want their research results confused with other studies using different scientific names.

The excellent and collectible philodendron domesticum is described by lengthy spade-molded leaves and rosy purple stems. It likewise goes by Spade-Leaf Philodendron or, all the more broadly, Burgundy Philodendron.

On the off chance that you’re new to Philodendron Domesticum care or new to plants as a general rule, have no dread. You’ll learn all that you really want to be aware in this far reaching article to keep your plant cheerful and flourishing.

Philodendron Domesticum History and Origin The Philodendron Domesticum is important for a bigger gathering of blooming plants called Philodendrons. They’re local to heat and humidities in South America.

Despite the fact that they begin from sticky rainforests, they really do well as pruned houseplants. Philodendrons were first kept in 1644 however weren’t given a name until 1829. They were named Philodendrons after Greek “philo” signifying “love,” and “dendron” signifying “tree.” As climbers, they love to embrace trees.

How long will my exotic philodendron Domesticum live?

One of our customers sent us a picture of their 10-year-old philodendron with its original tag! This is an outstanding example and far exceeds what most philodendrons can achieve in terms of life expectancy.

When cared for properly, it’s quite possible you’ll be able to enjoy your new philodendron as long as 20 years or more! Remember, when caring for your exotic philodendron Domesticum, use plenty of water but only when the soil is dry.

Is this species better suited to being outside or inside all year round?

This species is actually not an outdoor plant at all; it prefers indoor conditions with plenty of indirect light. If you are lucky enough to have an appropriate climate, however, you could keep it outside during spring and summer, bringing it inside in autumn before temperatures drop too low.

Will it need extra care when I bring it inside?

Yes! This Philodendron domesticum can take up to 3 months of adjustment once it leaves its outdoor home. For example, if you keep it inside during summer, be sure you acclimate it slowly before bringing it inside, so you don’t shock it too much with dramatic temperature changes from outside to in.

If your house is hot, place the plants on an enclosed porch or screen-in porch until they adjust gradually to indoor heat and humidity levels (do not put them in direct sunlight at first). Once they’re used to indoors year-round, keep them away from heating vents (which cause rapid drying) or near windows where cold air could escape right onto their leaves when winter hits.

Should I put my Philodendron domesticum outside in summer?

A philodendron is a species that prefers humid areas, which is why it often thrives inside in households all over North America. However, summer heat is hard on plants; it can dry them out or induce new growth before they’re ready.

Philodendrons may not be able to adapt as well as some other houseplants due to their thick leaves and susceptibility to disease, so it might be best if you put yours outside during summer months if you live in an area with hot summers.

Just make sure it gets plenty of sunlight before taking it outside, because all plants need both light and water in order to grow properly!

How do you care for a philodendron Domesticum?

The first thing you want to know about caring for a philodendron is how much light it needs, where in your house is best, what temperature is ideal, how often should you water it, etc… The second thing you want to know about caring for one is whether or not it’s suitable for your space at all.
While many people would like their homes filled with exotic plants (and who wouldn’t?), some are simply too large or take up too much room in certain rooms – such as those living in tiny apartments. Which begs the question: can philodendrons thrive outside? Not all varieties can but fortunately philodendrons come in an array of sizes, which means there’s likely one right up your alley!
The Philodendron domesticum variegated is slightly smaller than most, making it great for a small office or bedroom. It’s also more cold-hardy than other varieties, meaning it’ll live longer if you’re planning on moving it outdoors during the warmer months before bringing back inside when cooler weather sets in.
Some think of this plant as a weed because they grow quickly and look messy if not properly trimmed every so often, but don’t let that deter you from investing in one!
It has both ornamental value and medicinal properties so its worth sticking around despite its less-than-pristine appearance – especially since they’re said to improve air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide while releasing oxygen through photosynthesis.
You might be wondering if philodendrons are poisonous or dangerous to have around children and pets, but rest assured that this isn’t the case. In fact, just the opposite may be true: They make excellent companions for kids due to their penchant for grabbing onto furniture with long vines that can make them feel stable.
