Philodendron selloum 'Green Princess' is a new but very popular philodendron. This species is well-loved for its ease of care and its rich green leaves that are smaller than other varieties.
A philodendron selloum, or tree philodendron, is native to South America but also grows outdoors on the East and Gulf coasts of the United States. Indoors this easy-care, self-heading philodendron takes up a lot of space, often spreading 5ft. or more with 2ft.-3ft. leaves. The dark green, shiny leaves are large and deeply lobed. A selloum does grow a trunk as it matures, but the huge drooping leaves usually hide it. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.
