Need ID on cuttings

stephanie_kay(5a IL)June 4, 2013

Was at Walmart this morning and they were going to toss some plants in the trash. I asked if I could have a cutting of this one. Could anyone give me the name of it? Leave are green and feel velvety, red on underside.
I know I should know it but can't think of it.

Looks like a philodendron but don't know what kind. I'm sure someone else will be along shortly to tell you.

That is what I was thinking but didn't find it when I looked under philodendron's but looked again and added velvet and sure enough it is a Velvet Leaf Philodendron ( Philodendron scandens f. micans)
Thanks Will

Yes, Philodendron 'Micans.' The leaves on this one are much more delicate to mechanical injury and sensitive to direct sun than regular heart-leaf. Nice haul! When you get a chance, look at your plant back-lit. The leaves can look like they're neon, glowing.
