All About Philodendron Grazielae

Posted on December 11 2022

When it comes to the Philodendron family, the Grazielae is one of a kind! This trailing vine grows upright rather than downward, but benefits from the extra support of a trellis or bamboo stake. As far as looks go, the Grazielae has thick, heart-shaped leaves that are super shiny! If your plant-loving sweetheart is in need of a gift, look no further! With its easy care requirements, the Philodendron Grazielae is a no-brainer.

      The Best Unboxing Practices:

        Properly caring for your newly unboxed Philodendron Grazielae for the first week of its new life is crucial to the extended wellness of your plant. Follow these practices to get the best results:
          • Watering: Exotic Forest ships freshly watered plants. Do not water your Philodendron Grazielae until it exhibits the proper signs.
          • Repotting: Do not immediately repot your plant, which would likely result in shock and leaf-loss. Allow it to acclimate to its new environment for at least one week. 
          • Lighting: Place your Philodendron in filtered, low light for a few days to acclimate. Relocate your Philodendron Grazielae to your desired location that fits its care needs afterward. Do not ever place a freshly un-boxed plant in direct sun.

          FAQ about Philodendron Grazielae Care:

            • What’s the difference between the Philodendron Grazielae vs Microstictum? At first, the two appear similar: both upright growing, both with heart-shaped leaves. However, the Philodendron Grazielae has smaller, more compact leaves, with a more “perfect” heart shape (coming to a point). Also, its leaves are almost succulent-like; very thick and brittle. In contrast, the Philodendron Microstictum has larger “leafier” leaves (that are thin and flexible), that resemble the shape of the Philodendron Heartleaf vine. They’re bigger, fatter, and looser in shape.
            • What kind of soil does a Philodendron need? Philodendrons are epiphytic, which means they grow on trees, rather than in the soil. Their roots can be easily damaged by a potting mix that retains too much moisture. For that reason, you should alter a traditional potting mix with extra perlite and bark to give added drainage.
