Philodendron bipinnatifidum syn. Philodendron selloum

 

Tree Philodendron

This is a large semi-woody shrub with enormous glossy leaves and a single erect un-branched stem. This stem bears stout aerial roots between conspicuous leaf scars. The leaves can be .9m long and are dissected into wavy-margined lobes. The older and larger the plant gets, the more deeply dissected and ruffled the leaves become.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in a location with bright, indirect sunlight. Position near to a window where direct sunlight cannot touch the foliage. If the plant gets too much light, the leaves will begin to turn yellow. If the stems are long and leggy without plenty of leaves, the plant is most likely to be receiving insufficient light.

 

Propagation

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Cuttings require warm conditions. In summer, take stem cuttings or air layer the climbing varieties. With non-climbing varieties, shoots taken from the base of the stem can be used as cuttings.
