Notes. Multi-node, terrestrial Philodendrons can be propagated from nodes, the more nodes, the more opportunities for new plants.
Philodendron eximium has quite soft delicate leaves when young and can sometimes sustain some leaf damage during shipping. We take extra care in packing these to minimise the risk but it can happen.
Remove any yellowed, spent leaves.
