The Philodendron genus contains hundreds of species of beautiful foliage plants. Their leaves are typically large, green, and glossy, and philodendrons are great for adding a bit of their tropical touch to your home. These popular houseplants are known for their easy growing habits, and there are two types of philodendrons to choose from: vining and non-climbing.
The vining varieties grow several feet, usually requiring some support structure to climb on, such as a trellis or moss pole. Non-climbing varieties grow upright and are excellent foliage plants for containers. In general, philodendrons have a fast growth rate and are a great plant for beginners.
