The Philodendron plant, which when its name is broken down derives from Philo (love) and dendron (tree), is a member of the family aracea with over 400 varieties, from the heart leaf philodendron to the split leaf philodendron.
This tropical plant has been a mainstay within interior gardens for decades, as not only does it boast strong, shiny, dark green leaves (which are either lobed or deeply cut), but it also has the ability to tell you what it needs through signals, making it a popular indoor plant.
The Philodendron plant is delivered in a simple, purposeful white or anthracite plastic pot and can be repotted if desired.
Our plant pots are made from recycled materials, using 100% wind energy for their manufacturing process.

The Philodendron plant prefers a shady environment. Direct sunlight, draughts and fluctuating temperatures should be avoided.
Originating from tropical climates, Philodendrons are used to having their roots in constantly damp soil. Therefore, it is advisable to ensure the soil is continually moist without overwatering.
Dusting the leaves every month will ensure it remains able to absorb as much light as possible.
Your plant will benefit from plant food every two to four weeks.
FLOWERBX tip: Ensure a drainage system is in place for your plant to prevent excess water gathering in the base of the pot and rotting the roots.
