It has very large leaves, bright and with good texture can reach a height of more than one meter and a width of 50 cm. If it is true that in this genus there is a great dimorphism between the characteristics of young plants and adult plants, especially as concerns the leaves.
A peculiarity common to all philodendron species is to have aerial roots that grow at the level of the knots and that are used to attach themselves to a support.
The leaves have a different shape and size between them depending on the species and have in common the fact that when they are born they are wrapped in stipules until the petiole has not fully developed.
The philodendron flowers are whitish spats and in the center a yellow-white spadix.
In its natural habitat the philodendron produces a fruit (berry) with a taste similar to pineapple. In our homes, it is very rare for it to bear fruit.
