Strikingly bold, lush foliage makes this an ideal plant where tropical effects are sought. Not unlike the delicious monster (Monsteria deliciosa) in looks, philodendron has glossy, deeply divided, dark green leaves, segments of which are narrow and toothed. The broad leaves, on long, slender stems, are extremely elegant.
A wonderful allround shrub, it can be used as a solitary specimen, in a spacious container, in lobbies, on patios or in the garden, in sun or shade - the philodendron selloum grows well in bright indirect light. In lower light the leaves turn a darker green; direct sun or too much light burns or fades the leaves. Unlike other philodendrons, the selloum likes moist but not soggy soil.
As a tropical plant, philodendron is particularly effective at helping the clean the air we breathe. To take advantage of its air purification qualities for a healthier home environment, place philodendron plants in every 100 square feet of living space and let it do what it does naturally.
Philodendron is poisonous to dogs, and any ingestion is cause for an immediate call to your vet. If a dog ingests a significant amount of philodendron, they could experience severe respiratory and digestive issues that could be fatal.
