Philodendron verrucosum ‘Purple’

This rare Philodendron is from Ecuador and has just made its way into cultivation. I have not seen it offered for sale in the US. It is a smaller, more purple verrucosum, staying a similar size (so far) to the dwarf type offered, with 4-5? leaves. I cannot say for certain that it would not get larger with time, but in the three years I have had it, it has only produced about 8 leaves, and they are all 4? or smaller. It is significantly slower growing than the standard verrucosum and a bit trickier to grow.
