Philodendron pastazanum is part of the Araceae family and its native range is Ecuador to Peru. It is a climber and grows primarily in the wet tropical biome. This terrestrial growing plant will crawl along the forest floor in its native environment so it’s wise to consider a rectangular planter for P. pastazanum. Leaves are peltate-cordate in shape and have a semi-glossy look.
