The Philodendron is an easily cared for indoor/tropical plant. It is grown for the attractive leathery, usually glossy and sometimes velvety leaves. They like bright indirect light or curtain filtered sunlight. Keep the soil constantly moist through the growing season, never soggy or the roots will rot.With the upper lobes curving outwards and downwards, the species is known to botany as a scandent (climbing) vine. The low climbing hemiepiphytic Philodendron panduriforme is typically found at elevations between 120 to 150 meters (350 to 480 feet) above sea level but may occasionally be found up to 500 (1600 feet) meters in elevation. Hemiepiphytic species are plants that grow upon other plants but may begin life as a seed placed on a tree's branch by a bird or grow upwards from the soil, climbing a tree, as a seed dropped on the ground. Birds commonly eat the fruit berries of numerous Philodendron sp. and then deposit the seeds on the tree in their droppings. Growers typically assume all plants grow in soil, but in the rain forest that is far from true. Many more species grow climbing and clinging to the trees than in the soil.
