Get to Know Philodendron Hope!


The scientific name of Philo Hope is “Philodendron bipinnatifidum,” and it belongs to the Aracae family. This beginner-level house plant is native to the tropical regions of South America. While it may start out small and fit in a sunny corner, it can grow to be up to five feet tall – and wide! The leaves alone can grow to be up to three feet in size. While this plant has been known to flower, even when planted outdoors in its natural habitat, flowers will not bloom until the plant is between 15 and 20 years old. But, Philo Hope definitely makes up for its lack of flowers with stunning foliage.


These plants like to be kept moist, but not soggy. Water your plant when the top 2-5 cm (1-2 inches) of soil feels dry to the touch. In the summer this will happen more quickly than in the winter, so check the soil every few days to see if it's dry yet.

On average, you should water this plant once per week in the summer and once every 10-14 days in the winter. But it's still good to check the soil yourself to give your plant exactly what it needs.


The Philodendron Selloum is a tropical plant, so it prefers warm temperatures and humid conditions. These plants are native to South America, where they grow on the ground in the rainforest.

In its natural habitat, the Philodendron Selloum gets indirect sunlight as it grows beneath the canopy of taller trees. This is the type of light exposure that your Philodendron Hope will do best in.

You can give your Philodendron Hope bright, indirect light by placing it near a west- or south-facing window. If you don't have a spot like this in your home, you can also grow your Philodendron under artificial light, like an LED grow light.


The Philodendron Hope is toxic to cats and dogs.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

CURLING LEAVES: Curling leaves are an indication that your plant is not receiving enough water. Ensure that you are watering once the top couple inches of soil have dried out, and avoid letting your plant sit in fully dry soil for too long.

BROWNING TIPS: Browning leaf tips can be a result of a couple of different things. Usually, it’s a result of your philodendron being exposed to overly dry conditions. Ensure that you don’t have an air vent blowing directly on the leaves, and consider providing your plant with extra humidity using a pebble tray or humidifier. Browning tips can also be a result of too much direct sunlight which has resulted in burnt leaves. Lastly, browning leaves can be a result of a lack of watering. Ensure that you don’t allow your Brasil to dry out too much between waterings.
