Philodendrons are one of the easiest houseplants you can possibly grow. Whether you choose upright or trailing/climbing types, they are perfectly happy in a home setting. Even beginner gardeners are usually successful at growing these plants. Philodendrons are very low maintenance and can sit idle for long periods.
Philodendron genus contains some of the most beautiful foliage plants in the plant kingdom. Their glossy leaves add a touch of indoor jungle to your home, reminiscent of the tropical areas of the Americas to which they are native. For indoor use, there are two basic types of philodendrons: the climbing varieties and the self-heading (non-climbing) types.
Philodendrons will produce larger leaves and be healthier if you fertilize them regularly. Use slow-release pellets at the beginning of the growing season, or weekly liquid fertilizer. During the winter you only need to fertilize about once per month.
