Philodendron Imperial Red



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 most easy 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.
