Philodendron Imperial Green is an ornamental, air-purifying house plant. Also it is one of hybrid philodendrons. In indoor, it grows up to 35 to 45 inches tall. It has large, oval, leathery leaves. Young leaves are a bright red, developing to burgundy red-purple and eventually dark.
Philodendron is a classic, and practically no-fail houseplant because it’s so easy to grow. Happily, this makes it a pretty common indoor plant to find at your local garden center. The philodendron family is a pretty big one, too — so you can find a variety of plants that grow in a range of shapes, sizes, and colors.
Many of the traditional philodendron varieties are vines perfect for growing on a totem, up a trellis, or in a hanging basket, and some offer pleasing variegated foliage. These are counted as some of the easiest to grow houseplants of all time. Upright-growing philodendrons are just as easy but typically have larger leaves.
Note: Scientists are always looking at plant relationships and sometimes they reclassify plants. That’s why you’ll sometimes see some species of Philodendron also called Thaumatophyllum.
Grow philodendrons just about anywhere. As houseplants, they’re that easy to keep! The plants grow best in medium or bright-light spots, but tolerate low light exceedingly well.
Water philodendrons enough when the soil surface dries. They’re tough enough plants they don’t mind if you forget to water them now and again. Just take care not to overwater your philodendrons. They will rot if they’re kept too wet.
You typically don’t need to fertilize philodendrons much, if at all, but they appreciate a feeding once or twice a year in spring and summer. Use any houseplant fertilizer (available from your local garden center) and follow the packaging directions carefully.
Vining philodendrons are relatively slow growers but can be cut back at any time to keep them compact and bushy.
