Zippelianum – What a gorgeous, palm leaf aroid, easy to grow Amydrium Zippelianum forms large palm-like leaves with ample node spacing and a very bushy appearance. Young plants look nothing like mature specimens, they have smaller leaves with a lankier vining appearance, however our fast growing mother plant, only took 3 months before the nodes tightened up and formed massive leaves. Zippelianum grows best when provided with a burlap warped totem indoors or outdoors up your favorite tree. Truly a great plant!
Amydrium are highly unusual and often overlooked by collectors, Amydrium are simple to grow and offer up some amazing leaf shapes and sizes. Providing a totem or tree for these plants will allow them to reach their full potential. Leaves can be green, mottled, silver, speckled, shiny, matte, lobed, fingered, wrinkled, smooth, and more and can range in size from 2 inches to 24 inches or more. Truly a spectacular, easy to grow aroid.This plant has been grown to maturity and is verified.
Why Verify? Juvenile forms of many aroid species look the same and proper identification at a young age is almost impossible. Unless you've actually grown and curated these plants to their full potential its easy to mix many species up. Additionally many plants originating from South America, Europe etc. are all to often given the same name even though at maturity they differ. With our new verify program you can see the mature form prior to your purchase.
How We Verify? This project began years ago, we now have an impressive 600+ varieties growing on large poles to verify their size, node spacing, leaf color, stem diameter, rate of growth etc.

Plants growing here are grown in a natural, humid, rainforest-like environment with little to no pesticides. Though it seldom occurs, when you receive your plant, leaves may drop, have spotting, folds, or even a bite mark or two in addition leaf browning may occur especially on plants with significant white coloration, this is only natural. Remember with plants you're in it for the long haul, to enjoy their natural beauty and possibly share a cutting or two with friends and family.
Here at the nursery, plants are grown under 40-80% shade cloth. If you're growing outdoors and plant directly in full sun you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or so to avoid stress. Please refer to the above guidelines.
We can not guarantee any future variegation patterns, coloration, survival or growth rate of any plant though all of the mother plants we propagate from have been successfully growing here for 20 plus years, some plants may still sport. Rest assured all variegation is natural, we do not agree with temporary Chemically Induced Variegation, (NO C.I.V.)
