Collection: Philodendrons

These easy to care for tropical plants have been a favorite of both collector and hobbiest alike since they were first discovered in the 1600s. The first thing you notice about Philodendron are the large leaves, which come in a range of shapes and sizes such as oval, pointed or heart-shaped, but can also have deep incisions or eye-catching veins. They’re usually green, but there are also Philodendrons with creamy colorations or leaves that begin a deep red and fade to a dark green. The leaves are generally thick and leathery, and are known to be great at absorbing pollutants from the air, such as formaldehyde and Co2. Philodendron need surprisingly little water, which makes it an easy companion.
