The most grandiose, statement plant; the Philodendron Giganteum, or Giant Philodendron exceeds expectations. Its magnificent luscious green foliage can measure over 2 feet in length. These plants are true opportunists. Their aerial roots allow them to climb up adjacent trees, much like the Monstera Deliciosa. The broad leaves enable the Giant Philodendron to absorb as much light as possible as it filters through the forest canopy above.
Native to the Caribbean and Brazil, the Philodendron Giganteum is a popular choice among botany and horticulture enthusiasts alike for its ability to fill out empty spaces.
These plants prefer bright, indirect sunlight. They are capable of tolerating lower light conditions but their rate of growth will slow down.
Water regularly in the warmer months. Allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry out in between waterings.
Giant Philodendron are native to tropical regions meaning they enjoy humid environments. Regular misting is recommended. Clean the broad leaves often to remove dust and dirt.
These plants are toxic if ingested.
