A lot of stunning ornamental foliage plants belong to the Philodendron genus. And among them is the Philodendron squamiferum, also known as Red Bristle Philodendron or Hairy Philodendron. It’s commonly grown as an indoor plant but also does well outdoors. Although a rare find, this species is an easy-to-grow one.

  • Botanical Name: Philodendron ‘Squamiferum’
  • Common Names: Red Bristle Philodendron, Hairy Philodendron

Here’s some information about this plant:

  1. Appearance: Philodendron squamiferum is characterized by its large, heart-shaped leaves that feature prominent veins and a velvety texture. What sets this plant apart are the reddish-brown bristles or “hairs” that cover the petioles (leaf stalks) and stems, giving it a distinctive and intriguing appearance. The leaves themselves are typically a glossy green color.
  2. Growth Habit: This Philodendron species can grow as a climbing or trailing plant, producing long stems that can reach several feet in length. It tends to grow slowly compared to some other Philodendron varieties, but its unique foliage makes it a desirable addition to any indoor plant collection.
  3. Light: Provide Philodendron squamiferum with bright, indirect light for optimal growth and leaf development. While it can tolerate lower light conditions, it may not exhibit as vigorous growth or produce as vibrant foliage. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can lead to leaf burn.
  4. Watering: Allow the top inch or two of soil to dry out between waterings, then water the plant thoroughly until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can cause root rot. Adjust the watering frequency based on factors such as temperature, humidity, and light levels.
  5. Humidity: Philodendron squamiferum appreciates moderate to high humidity levels, similar to its native tropical habitat. If the air in your home is dry, consider increasing humidity by misting the leaves regularly, using a humidity tray, or placing the plant near a room humidifier.
  6. Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C) for Philodendron squamiferum. Avoid exposing it to temperature extremes or drafts, as it prefers stable conditions.
  7. Soil: Plant Philodendron squamiferum in a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture but does not become waterlogged. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark or coco coir works well. Ensure that the pot has adequate drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating around the roots.
  8. Fertilization: Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or suspend fertilization in fall and winter when growth slows down.
  9. Pruning: Remove any yellowed, damaged, or leggy growth as needed to maintain the plant’s appearance and promote new growth. You can also prune the plant to control its size and shape or to propagate new plants from stem cuttings.
  10. Toxicity: Like many other Philodendron species, Philodendron squamiferum contains calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation or discomfort if ingested. Keep the plant out of reach of children and pets, and wash your hands after handling it.

Philodendron squamiferum is a visually striking and relatively low-maintenance plant that can add interest to any indoor space with its unique foliage. With proper care and attention to its needs, it can thrive and become a captivating focal point in your home or office.
