A Bit About Philodendron Plants

This plant belongs to the Philodendron genus in the family Araceae. Believe it or not - the philodendron genus is the second largest member of the Araceae family!

The name Philodendron is derived from the Greek work ‘philo’ translated as love, and ‘dendron’ – translated as ‘tree’. We think that ‘love tree’ is a pretty good name for the Philodendron!

Unlike other members of the Araceae family, Philodendrons come in many varieties – many displaying their own version of the Philodendron leaf or stem, in different shapes and forms.

Depending on the variety, the growth habits of the philodendron can be epiphytic, hemiepiphytic or once in a while – terrestrial. (Visit our plant blog to read more about different growth habits of plants).

The great thing about Philodendrons as house plants is that they do not have a single type of leaf, but young leaves that develop over time into adult leaves which have a completely different look. This is part of the joy of watching your philo-plant grow. The process of producing adult leaves on a more mature plant is called metamorphosis.

Philodendrons have both aerial and subterranean roots. Aerial roots can occur from any plant node so they can often appear at the top of the stem! These roots are helpful both for anchoring the plant to a tree (or moss pole), as well as helping to collect water and nutrients.

A Philodendron can produce both flowers and berries in its natural habitat – so if you see these forming on your houseplant then you know he is happy in his home!
