About the Philodendron Selloum

This tropical plant belongs to the Araceae family and is one of the three Philodendron families. The philodendron selloum is the species with the largest leaves . This plant can grow on the ground but also likes to climb a (moss) stick. When the philodendron is allowed to climb, it produces long aerial roots that can also absorb water and nutrients.

How big does a Philodendron Selloum get?

The Philodendron Selloum can grow very quickly. In its natural habitat it can grow to over 10 meters tall with leaves of one meter! This tropical plant will not grow that big in your room, it usually grows as a indoorplant to about 150 to 200 cm and the leaves grow to a maximum of 30 to 40 cm.

The best place for a Philodendron Selloum

In South America it is usually nice and warm, so the Philodendron can't handle the cold well. Philodendrons prefer not to be exposed to temperatures below 15 degrees, so keep them indoors! Lots of light is very good for this plant and it makes it grow quickly, just be careful with the hot afternoon sun. Especially if you place this houseplant very close to the window, burn marks can appear in the leaves!

How much water does a Philodendron Selloum need?

The large leaves are thick and leathery, so they allow little moisture to evaporate. As a result, the Philodendron needs surprisingly little water and does not like being in wet soil; if you are not careful, the roots will rot. Keeps a philodendron evenly moist without letting it dry out completely. You can give it a little water every week.

Multiple browning leaves indicate not enough water (of course some of them sometimes fall off due to age). Yellow leaves are caused by too much water or too few nutrients in the soil. An indoorplant also needs nutrition, otherwise it will not grow well and be more susceptible to diseases and bugs. With Plantfood tabs you can provide your indoor plant with enough nutrition for a whole year!
