Philodendron selloum, also known as the split-leaf philodendron or tree philodendron, is a tropical plant native to South America, particularly Brazil and Paraguay. It's a popular choice for indoor and outdoor landscaping due to its lush foliage and low maintenance requirements.

Here's a description of Philodendron selloum:

Foliage: One of the most distinctive features of Philodendron selloum is its large, deeply lobed leaves. The leaves can grow up to 2 to 3 feet long and are typically around 2 feet wide. Each leaf is deeply dissected, giving it a split or lobed appearance. The foliage is glossy and dark green, adding a tropical feel to any space.

Growth Habit: Philodendron selloum typically grows in a clumping, upright manner, with multiple stems emerging from the base. It can reach heights of 4 to 6 feet indoors, and even taller when grown outdoors in its natural habitat. The plant can spread to several feet wide, creating a bushy appearance.

Root System: Like many philodendron species, Philodendron selloum has an extensive root system. This helps support its large, sprawling foliage and enables it to absorb nutrients efficiently from the soil.

Flowers and Fruits: Philodendron selloum occasionally produces flowers, although they are not particularly showy and are often hidden beneath the foliage. The plant may also develop small, greenish fruits, but these are rare and not a prominent feature of the plant's appearance.

Light and Water Requirements: This plant thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate some shade. Direct sunlight can scorch its leaves, so it's best to place it where it receives filtered sunlight. Philodendron selloum prefers consistently moist soil, but it's important not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot.

Temperature and Humidity: Philodendron selloum prefers warm temperatures and high humidity, mimicking its native tropical environment. It can tolerate average indoor temperatures but may suffer in cold drafts or temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

Landscape Use: In tropical and subtropical regions, Philodendron selloum is often used in outdoor landscapes as a specimen plant or as part of a lush, tropical garden. In cooler climates, it's a popular choice for indoor decoration, adding a touch of exotic greenery to homes, offices, and public spaces.
