Philodendron x joepii is part of the Araceae family and is native to French Guyana. It was found by Dutch naturalist Joep Moonen along the Mataroni River in 1991 and over time it is thought there are only two in the wild; Moonen concluded it is a hybrid (P. bipennifolium × P. pedatum). Leaves are tri-lobed with a wider lower lobe and narrow upper body. Like a lot of aroids, this plants’ leaf morphology changes over time. Philodendron x joepii would benefit from a moss pole as it grows.

Genus name comes from the Greek thaumato meaning wonder or miracle and phyllum meaning leaf. Joepii honours Joep Moonen who discovered the plant.


Light: Bright indirect light, meaning the plant sees the sun for 0-4 hours per day - this could be through trees or a translucent curtain, it’s important for the plant to see the sky in order to thrive. 

Water: Allow the first 2-3 inches of mix to dry out, pour water slowly over the top and allow the water to pass through the drainage holes.

Potting mix: A well draining mix composed of coco coir, perlite or vermiculite, orchid bark and worm castings.

Fertilising: Feed your plant every other watering during the growing season or when you observe active growth. You can dilute fertiliser to half the recommended amount but never add more.
