Grown widely as an indoor plant in Australia and New Zealand the Lacy Tree Philodendron is equally at home as a garden shrub in temperate and tropical climates.

Large lush heart shaped glossy green leaves that become deeply divided as they mature can reach over 1 metre in length.

As a garden shrub they can reach a height of around 3 metres that produce thick aerial roots that supports the plant and absorbs water and nutrients.

A low maintenance plant for the house, patio or garden that is often used for landscaping in warmer climates where a single plant can spread over an area 3 metres wide.
In colder regions philodendrons can be grown as an indoor plant or in a sheltered position such as a greenhouse or against a north face wall.

Native to South America.

Adaptable to most well-drained moist soils in a protected sunny or partly shaded position.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination for this species is around 23-30°C.

  1. Sow the depth of 2mm in a seed raising mix.
  2. Keep warm & moist but not too wet.
  3. Germination should occur in 14-56 days if temperatures are maintained @ 23-30°C
  4. Seedlings are prone to damping off, it is important not to over-water your seedlings

General note: Seeds of many plant species are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
