The name philodendron is derived from the Greek words philo (love) and dendron (tree). This classic plant is among the most popular houseplants, and considered one of the easiest to grow. Lacy tree philodendrons, also commonly known as lacy leaf philodendron, are a large upright vine native to the rain-forests of Brazil. It requires space to grow them indoors, since they tend to spread wide. They grow to a height of approximately three feet, but its width can be nearly twice its height.  

In addition to being easy to care for, the philodendron plant can help to purify your air!

Light: Philodendrons grow best in medium light and bright indirect sunlight. Older leaves turn yellow naturally. However, if you notice several yellow leaves at once, it could be an indicator that the plant is getting too much sun. They will tolerate low light, but if the stems become leggy with several inches between the leaves, you may need to move the plant to a brighter location.

Watering: Water when the top inch of soil dries out. Take care not to over water, since philodendron will rot if kept soggy. If the leaves are brown and falling off, the plant is likely not getting enough water. Droopy leaves can mean the plant is getting either too much or not enough water, but they should revive once you correct the issue.

Pruning: Rarely needs pruning

Propagation: Easily propagated by seed, stem cuttings containing at least two nodes, or division of basal offshoots.

Disease and pests: None

Generally, this is a surprisingly bold and tough plant that will stand much abuse as long as it is grown in shade in hot climates.
