Philodendron, What a Majestic Plant!
Is it too early to start gardening planning for 2018? NOPE! It’s still awfully cold in many areas of our country now; however, warmer days will be here in no time, so get ready.
Philodendron are an ideal plant to use between your property and your neighbor’s line if you don’t have a fence. Or you can also use it in front of your home as an accent plant. It does not flower unless under special conditions and the color is a beautiful intense glossy green.
As with anything else, before purchasing this plant do some research; decide where do you want it, and how’s the soil, the sun or shade in the area.
