 Philodendron Selloum (Philodendron bipinnatifidum)

Philodendron Selloum, also known as Split-Leaf Philodendron or Philodendron bipinnatifidum, is a stunning plant with large, deeply lobed leaves. The leaves are glossy and leathery, with a deep green color that brings a touch of tropical beauty to any space. Each leaf is deeply divided into lobes, resembling the shape of a palm leaf or a large hand. The foliage is lush and voluminous, creating a bold and dramatic appearance. Philodendron Selloum can grow to impressive sizes, making it a focal point in gardens, conservatories, or spacious interiors.

Light: Philodendron Selloum thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but for optimal growth and leaf health, provide it with moderate to bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Soil type: Well-draining soil is essential for Philodendron Selloum. Use a rich, organic potting mix that retains moisture without becoming waterlogged. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and compost is suitable.

Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot.

Temperature: Philodendron Selloum prefers average to warm temperatures between 18-27°C (65-80°F). Protect the plant from cold drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations.

Humidity: This plant appreciates higher humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the leaves regularly or placing the plant on a tray filled with water and pebbles. Alternatively, use a humidifier to maintain a humidity level of around 50-60%.

Maintenance: Remove any yellow or damaged leaves regularly to promote new growth. Clean the leaves with a damp cloth to keep them dust-free. Provide support or stakes for larger plants to help them maintain an upright form. Inspect the plant for pests like spider mites or mealybugs and take appropriate measures if needed.
