Little Phil™ is a compact form perfect for shade and as an indoor plant
    Little Phil™ Philodendron is far more compact than other Philodendrons, giving it some great advantages. Its leaves don't elongate as much as others, meaning the Little Phil™ plant is better in low light levels.

    The ability of Little Phil™ Philodendron to cope with heavy shade, along with its small size, make this the perfect green wall or indoor plant.
