We love this large philodendron for its fascinating foliage and elegant Victorian look!


Philodendron bipinnatifidum is a very versatile houseplant that will do well either in sun or deep shade, it adapts well to different conditions. If you want a really large houseplant that is suited to a variety of spaces then this may be one to consider.


Otherwise known as Philodendron selloum, or simple laude, it is a beautiful extra large houseplant that has wonderful emerald green leaves which explode from the base. It really gives the flavour of the rainforest and will either sit on the floor or on top of a dresser and drape itself artfully over your furnishings.


Seloum laude does well in moisture rich compost, but it is also happy to function as an epiphyte - a plant that grows on other plants and trees - and so we recommend sitting it in a tray of pebbles with water. This will keep the humidity high and will give it plenty of moisture as well.


This Philodendron would make a wonderful houseplant gift for a special person. We’ll even include a free handwritten card with any gift - just make sure you include your gift message at the basket stage of checkout. We’ll leave out the paperwork too so they won’t see the price!


Happy Houseplants is the best place to come for online plant delivery - we bring you beautiful and unusual houseplants to give you a true rainforest experience in your own home - try forest bathing - meditation or relaxation surrounded by your houseplants! It may be hard to go to a real forest but you can enjoy the experience in your own home with some of our plants, and revel in the stress relief. It really works!
