This gorgeous evergreen creeper is a challenge for any plant parent. Its high-maintenance nature pays off in its unmatched beauty and uniqueness.
This plant is a cultivar of the Philodendron Luxurians, although some consider it simply a mislabeling and not a cultivar or any other type of variety or clone. The confusion comes from the origin of this species, Choco in Colombia, which is believed to be the reason for the labeling of “choco” instead of “chocolate” sometimes.
But the cultivar Philodendron Luxurians ‘Chocolate’ differs from the original specimen mainly in darker deep-green leaves with the species’ characteristic and easy-to-identify velvety texture. This is a high-maintenance plant that tends to survive no more than a year in indoor conditions.
