Philodendron velvet is a type of philodendron that has leaves in the shape of an oval.

The philodendron micans plant is a species of philodendron that can be found in the rain forests and jungles of Central America. It was named after Mr. Michael Micans, an esteemed horticulturist who discovered the philodendron in 1891 while on safari with Ernest Henry Wilson.

Philodendron micans plant is a tropical philodendron that thrives in the shade. While they prefer natural light, philodendrons can grow under artificial lights with some extra care. Place philodends near a window and make sure there are no streetlights or other sources of bright outdoor light shining through the window.

Philodendron micans plant can also grow under fluorescent lights, but they need to be near a window or other source of natural light at all times because philodends cannot make their own vitamin D and may become sick without it. Place the philodendron in front of artificial windows so that its leaves are always touching natural light.

Philodendron micans plants will also be healthy if they are in front of a south-facing window, but the philodendron may need to be moved every few months as its leaves tend to grow towards the sun and block artificial lights from shining through.
