The Velvet Philodendron Neofloretum capensis is a member of the Araceae family and is native to eastern Brazil. It was first described in 1820 by Asa Gray, who named it after the Greek word philodendron, which means lovegift. The plant is usually grown as an indoor plant, but can also be found growing outdoors in warmer climates. The Velvet Philodendron is known for its large leaves, which can reach up to 3 feet in width and 2 feet in length. The leaves are also covered in a soft, velvety texture that makes them very attractive to look at.
