The Philodendron gigas, also known as the giant Philodendron, is a stunning ornamental plant native to the rainforests of Ecuador. This species belongs to the family Araceae and is highly esteemed for its striking physical features. When mature, this Philodendron species boasts large, heart-shaped leaves that exhibit a glossy, deep green coloration. Furthermore, at maturity the leaves have prominent, deeply incised lobes, giving them a distinctive and attractive appearance. P. gigas is a climbing plant that relies on aerial roots to attach itself to surrounding trees or supports, for this reason they perform best when provided with a support trellis/pole to climb. 

PLEASE NOTE:
All pictures are of plants currently for sale or previously sold at The Tropic Gardener. The plant photographed should be used as an indication of size and quality only and may not be the exact plant you receive. Form and colour will vary slightly.

CARE:
Prefers a warm, humid spot with bright indirect light indoors, or outdoors in a sheltered position. Use a well-draining potting soil (an aroid mix is ideal) and allow soil to partially dry out before watering. Fertilise throughout spring and summer.

How Our Shipping Works 

We use Australia Post Express Post. Always. 

We ship at 9am on Monday mornings to reduce the chance of plants sitting in Aus Post warehouses over weekends. (Our plants will generally survive up to 2 weeks in boxes, but we like to reduce any risk at all).

Shipping Costs and Sizing

Strap yourself in, this is a little complicated! 

Our shipping rates are based on weight. This is why we’ll never cramp a plant with big leaves into a small box, because it’s weight, not size that Australia Post charges for. 

We have four different box sizes.

  • Small Order =  $15 shipping
  • Medium Order = $20 shipping
  • Large Order = $25 shipping
  • Extra Large = $30 shipping (up to 800g)

An order with multiple plants over the 800g limit will be packaged in multiple boxes, at the following rates: 

Multiple Boxes: 

  • Extra Large and Small  =$35
  • Extra Large and Medium = $40
  • Extra Large and Large = $45

After that, we cap our shipping at $50. So feel free to order as many plants as you like and know that most you’ll pay is $50!

As all of our plants come in varying sizes, we have to make the best shipping decision for the health of the plant, so each order is a little different. It’s a bit of a tricky process. As a result our costs are sometimes fractionally extra than you might see on the Aus Post website, but that’s because we include the cost of the packaging materials and the time it takes to carefully pack your new plant. 

We hope this clears up any mystery about how we price our shipping for our online nursery. We will always do our best to both package your plants safely and with maximum affordability. Please do contact us if you have any further questions!
