The reason philodendrons make such amazing indoor plants is that they adapt to a wide variety of lighting and water conditions in the wild and so will thrive indoors very well. The plants have large, green, dark leaves which allow them to absorb even the tiniest traces of light and water in the wild or at home.
The Philodendron Painted Lady is a collectors dream, very hard to find and popular for its beautiful leaves of neon yellow dappled with darker green on bright red stems.
This philodendron is a climber so eventually, it will want a cane for support or will trail in a hanging planter. In the Greek language “Philo” means love and “Dendron” means “tree hugger” - it loves to climb trees.
A rainforest regular hailing originally from South America and it really brings a touch of the exotic! Brighten up dreary days by looking at your Philodendron and imagining hot, moist heat and birds screeching, let yourself be carried away to the jungle!
These plants aren’t hard to look after, they will thrive in the shade which makes them ideal if you have no experience of looking after houseplants. It also means they aren’t hard to situate in your home, they will love any corner of any room really, in the sun or in the shade.
