There are many types of philodendrons out on the market today. These popular houseplants are known for their easy care and exotic beauty. They come in various shapes, colors, and sizes and can be upright (doesn’t require support) or vining (needs support).
Philodendrons grow best in medium to bright indirect light. They do not like wet feet and can tolerate it if you miss a watering.
The name Philodendron comes from the greek words Philo (love, affection, and dendron (tree).
Keep plants away from pets and children.
