Description for Philodendron, Selloum

This plant works as a tropical shrub and may climb a nearby fence or tree. Selloum grows a trunk eventually though you will not see much of it when the leaves droop over each other in dense layers. These plants also work well in containers by the pool, on a patio or balcony, or even indoors.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Lacy tree philodendron, selloum - It takes about 15-20 years for a Philodendron or Selloum to flower and it rarely flowers indoors 8 to 10 feet Easy

Planting and care

Philodendron is a tropical plant that is usually grown in full sun, but can tolerate and adapt to deep shade.
It grows best in rich, moisture-retentive soil that can be slightly alkaline. However, it cannot tolerate high salt concentration in soil.
It is capable of supporting itself at massive heights by producing tree-like bases. However, it will exhibit epiphytic characteristics if given the opportunity to attach itself to a nearby supporting tree and climb upon it.
The trunk of this plant can send down many strong aerial roots that not only give support to the overall plant mass, but also serve to absorb water and nutrients from the soil.

This plant is greatly known for its ease in covering a land mass, and typically spread out its tree-like trunk from anywhere between eight to ten feet.
Alternatively, if grown in cooler climates with at least some freezing winter weather, its entire aboveground structures will die back completely at a hard frost and then sprout back from the roots the following spring.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Philodendron grows well in the bright indirect light. In lower light, the leaves of a Philodendron turn a darker green.
Direct sun or too much direct light burns or fades the leaves of a Philodendron Selloum.
A Philodendron Selloum grows best in a rich, slightly alkaline soil that retains moisture.
The leaf tips of a Philodendron Selloum burn when there is too much salt in the soil usually due to over-feeding.
Water regularly but give the plant time to dry out between succesive watering. Philodendron Selloums like to be warm so keep the temperature above 55 degrees F during the winter. Feed a Philodendron Selloum with a water soluble fertilizer monthly during the spring, summer, and fall.
Dilute the plant food to 1/2 the recommended strength to avoid excess salts building up in the soil of a Philodendron Selloum and burning the leaves.

Caring for Philodendron

    Add composted cow manure to the hole when you plant. No trimming is needed other than to remove an old leaf and stem. This plant can not be cut back to size, so make sure its ultimate height and width will work in your landscape. If cold damages an established selloum, it may die all the way back but send up new sprouts in spring. Water regularly but give time to dry out between watering. Philodendrons cannot take a wet area - they will rot. Fertilize 3 times a year - in spring, summer, and autumn - with a quality granular fertilizer.

Typical uses of Philodendron

Special features: For a tropical foliage splash, tree philodendron is a winner.
It is most effective standing alone or in combination with other lush-leafed plants such as gingers and bananas.
Since it prefers some shade, tree philodendron is superb for a courtyard or against a wall in a pool yard.

Culinary use: NA

Ornamental use: Philodendrons also make excellent house plants, provided that you have enough space to accommodate their size.
These plants also work well in containers by the pool, on a patio or balcony, or even indoors.
Landscape uses for philodendron selloum include: large entryway accent, backdrop for smaller plants, between tall palms, informal hedge, lining a driveway or walk, beside a porch, deck or patio, along a fence, corner-of-the-house shrub, decoration for a blank wall, container plant.

Medicinal use: NA
