Philodendron: Identification, plant Growth and reproduction

Learn about the plant

Philodendron is a genus of about 500 species of evergreen prickly shrubs. They are mainly climbing shrubs; shrubs are often rainforests, in Florida, Mexico, western West India, and Central Latin America.
There are two standard kinds of Philodendron. The first group, the climbers, are well suited to the joint space, so long as you supply company support for that stalks. A feature of many climbing Philodendrons is the production of aerial origins from your stems, which sources have a significant part of trying out. Push them in the compost to supply dampness for that upper foliage. Plants and many fruits rarely seem under house problems. The majority of the 2nd group, the non-climbers, are capable of increasing into immense plants and flowers with prominent, deeply-lobed foliage. All parts may cause moderate tummy upset if consumed, and contact with the sap may inflame pores and skin.

Plant growth conditions

Common warmness in summer season – minimal 60 F in the wintertime. Semi-shade or vibrant light. Always keep well far from sunshine. Grow in soilless planting blend.

Water sparingly in winter. For the rest of the entire year h2o extensively. Misting is needed.

Plant reproduction

In early spring or summer time cooking pot up basal shoots with just a few foliage and roots attached. Atmosphere layering is an option—surface area-sow seed at 66-75 F ( 19-24 C) in the spring season.
