Cut-Leaf Philodendron

3 Mar

Cut-Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron selloum), 6-8 ft., dramatic huge dark green leaves, filtered sun.

Philodendron selloum is a bold and beautiful tropical plant with pinnatifid leaves growing from a main stubby stalk. Individual leaves get very large and are glossy green and deeply lobed. Philodendron is used for both indoors and outdoors. Foliage will become a darker green in low light areas.

Light & Philodendrons

Philodendrons will tolerate some shade but prefer strong light. Light requirements for indoors are four to eight hours of filtered light. Do no place the plant in a window where it will receive direct sunlight through the glass.

Water & Soil

Philodendrons prefer slightly moist soil. They take misting of foliage well. Whether in containers or open ground outdoors, philodendron selloum prefers a good organic, loose, and well-drained soil like premium potting soil mix.

Fertilizing Philodendrons

Feed lightly and frequently for good growth and color with a 20-20-20 or similar tropical house plant fertilizer for indoors, or tree and shrub fertilizer for outdoors.
