This horse-head philodendron is one of our favorites! It's not named after an Illinois zip code, but it did get its name from its accession number at Missouri Botanical Gardens, after originally thought to be a Philodendron Joepii. The leaf blades change shape as they mature and become more hourglass shaped overtime, growing over two feet in length! They prefer medium to bright indirect light and well draining, moist soil. Be sure to feed your 69686 with Worm Castings and Fish Fertilizer during the growing season!
Don't just look at me, and move on... Buy me, you'll be very happy you did! Just check out Jeff's big Philodendron 69686 in the picture- That plant is a fine example of what we can grow into in less than 6 months! If I'm not in stock, no problem! I can be ordered for you; just send us a message and ask us about it, or wait patiently for it to arrive on it's own! (That doesn't happen fast! We truly enjoy fulfilling customer requests, so ASK US, Please!!!)
