Philodendrons in a Hanging Basket or Pot
A favorite, decorative houseplant, philodendron plants come in two main varieties, climbing and upright. As the name indicates, climbing philodendron plants ascend vertical surfaces nearby and can be trained with a pole or trellis. Or place it in a hanging basket to create a trailing plant as it drapes casually down and around the basket. Whereas an upright philodendron grows upward, but at a much slower pace and hold its own weight. Upright varieties have much larger leaves than the climbing philodendrons.
Do Philodendrons Need Direct Sunlight?
For best results, place philodendrons in indirect light. Direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn. They flourish in rooms with low humidity. In the wild, philodendrons grow beneath the tree canopy in South and Central America. Nature designed this plant to thrive in low light. Keep philodendrons plants in areas where the temperature never falls below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

They illuminate any corner or look great on a desk or windowsill. They simply transform any space to have a home-like feeling. Philodendrons grow rapidly, so prune them when the plant becomes too long. In fact, philodendrons may grow as much as four inches weekly in spring and summer! Pruning consists of lopping off six inches of the longest stems.
The plant does best when its soil is moist but not overly wet. Let the top inch of soil dry out before watering again. Expect growth to slow in winter, so water less often. Want to grow more philodendron plants? It’s easy. Just remove all but the top few leaves on the stems you cut and place them in a small container of lukewarm water. When roots start emerging, usually in about two weeks, place the cutting in a pot with moist soil.
