Facts about Philodendron

Philodendron is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae. There are accepted 489 species in the world. Many are grown as ornamental and indoor plants. A tree philodendron can reach a height of 12-15 feet (3.6-4.5 m) with an equal or greater spread. How to Grow and Care: First, most philodendrons are not cold hardy and can only live outside in a very warm climate. They prefer the same temperatures humans enjoy indoors. Second, most species do not do well in direct sun, and, finally, most philodendrons require well-draining soil to thrive.

Philodendron White Princess can develop all white, or all green leaves over time.

Philodendron Hope has large leaves that are heart-shaped, medium green, and glossy with deep, wavy incisions along.

Philodendron Birkin is a beautiful plant showing dark green glossy leaves strongly striped with creamy-white variegation.

Be Careful: plants contain oxalates which can cause swelling, drooling, and loss of speech if swallowed. Swelling, redness, and irritation can also occur if the skin or eyes are exposed.
