Philodendron is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae. As of September 2015, the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families accepted 489 species. Philodendrons can be found in the southern half of North America and all of Central and South America. Their primary habitat is warm humid rainforests with rich well draining soil. They can also be found in swamps and along bodies of water.
Philodendrons enjoy a low- to medium filtered sun and enjoy dappled shade. They need a well draining enriched soilless mix. Our Aroid Mix is specifically suited for Philodendrons and many other species in the araceae family.
