Philodendron selloum

This plant grows up to five feet high and the leaves grow up to three feet.  This plant is poisonous.  Fertilize every month during the spring through fall with a water soluble fertilizer.  Too much plant food causes excess salt build up in the soil that can result in leaf burn.  The Philodendron selloum reaches its maturity at twenty years.

 - Bright indirect light.  Lower light leaves turn dark green.

- Warm temperatures above 55 degrees.  Keep away from drafts and open doors.

- Grows best in rich, slightly alkaline soil

- Moist soil-during the winter, water less often, keeping the soil barely moist.

- Native to South America

* Like all philodendron, can be toxic if ingested by humans or pets.
