Manny, a Philodendron Micans, Philodendron Hederaceum var. Hederaceum, or Velvet Leaf Philodendron, is a more rare variety that has an iridescent bronze shimmer to its velvety heart-shaped leaves – no really, they literally glisten!


As new leaves unfurl they appear a chartreuse color outlined in pink, progressing to a deep green colour with a deep purple-red underbelly, which looks comes across as rusty orange when the light shines through.


Native to the Caribbean and Mexico, Manny belongs to the Araceae family which believe it or not includes the likes of Wallace, our Monstera Deliciosa, and Clarence, our Anthurium Clarinervium!

Manny, Philodendron Micans - Small

  • Manny prefers indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
