A philodendron selloum, or tree philodendron, is native to South America.
Indoors this easy-care, self-heading philodendron takes up a lot of space. The dark green, shiny leaves are large and deeply lobed. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets.
A philodendron selloum grows well in bright indirect light. In lower light the leaves turn a darker green.
Unlike other philodendrons, the selloum likes moist but not soggy soil. During the winter, water less often, keeping the soil barely moist.
Philodendron selloums like warm temperatures above 55°F (12.8°C). Keep these plants away from drafts and open doors especially during the winter.
