Philodendron mini Ecuador

This Philodendron resembles the ‘Condor’ Philodendron, although unfortunately this one didn’t come with locality information. It is a true miniature, only getting as large as you see in this photo (leaves around 3″).  The petioles are a light pink, while the main stem is green. Leaves have a red tint to them and are much redder if grown in bright light. It is a slow grower, only putting out a few new leaves every 4-6 months. Albeit slow, it doesn’t seem too difficult or picky about growing conditions.
