      What Does Philodendron Mean? 

      Few plant species are as popular for houseplants as Philodendrons, and there are a few good reasons for this. But, have you ever wondered what the species' name means? The word “philodendron” comes from the Greek words “philo-,” which means love, and “dendron,” which means tree. Putting both terms together, Philodendron means “tree loving” or “tree hugging.” Since these lush plants grow best in dappled light, they have most often been found growing close to trees, which earned them their charming name. 

      What Makes Philodendrons So Special?

      Philodendrons love warm, humid conditions with plenty of indirect light. Some varieties can grow to impressive sizes, while others are content in small pots. Foliage varies considerably between Philodendron varieties — some plants even have different leaf shapes on the same plant! 

      Juvenile leaves can differ entirely from adult growth, so don't be surprised when the tiny Philodendrons you are nurturing from tissue culture plantlets start developing adult leaves and change appearance. It's all part of the natural growing process of this attractive plant species. 

      Some reasons why we love Philodendrons and stock so many varieties at Orange Lake Nursery is because:

      • There are numerous varieties with different leaf shapes, sizes and interesting colors.
      • They are excellent houseplants that add instant jungle vibes to any setting.
