Key benefits of Philodendrons for your home

by Plants for all Seasons 11 Jan 2022 0 Comments

The Philodendron is one of the most popular houseplants in the UK and is loved by experts and novices alike. There are many species that come in a variety of colours, shapes and growth habits so you will always be able to find something to suit your needs. If you are looking for a new houseplant or just want a great plant to get started then this guide will help you decide if the Philodendron is the right plant for you.

Why should I buy a Philodendron?

The Philodendron is a fantastic tropical houseplant that will bring fantastic colour and texture into your home. It's easy to look after and can adapt to most environments, but there are so many benefits to owning plants in this species. Here are some of the best things about the Philodendron.

1. Easy to look after houseplant

The Philodendron is an easy to look after houseplant that is ideal for beginners or spaces like offices. Unlike many houseplants with special needs or changing care requirements, the Philodendron just needs light, water and some light misting of the leaves to stay happy and healthy.

2. A great communicator

One of the reasons a Philodendron is a fantastic plant to look after is because it will tell you when something is wrong. Browning, yellowing or drying leaves will all appear if something is wrong with the plant. Unlike most houseplants, the Philodendron will recover in a matter of days once it is fed, watered or moved to a sunnier position.

3. Adaptive

Philodendrons can adapt to most growing conditions. They are comfortable in room temperature environments and can survive in low light conditions (although they do prefer bright, indirect light). This is a plant that will survive in an office, living room or study. It’s also the perfect choice of a houseplant for the bathroom or kitchen as it thrives in humid environments.

4. Air Purifying

Philodendrons (especially Heart Leaf Philodendrons) are well regarded for their ability to purify the air around them. A NASA study found that they were amongst the best air-purifying houseplants and work to remove toxins from the air - this means that the Philodendron improves your environment, your health and creates an all-around nicer place to live.

5. Reduced stress levels

Houseplants are a fantastic way to reduce stress in your life. Many scientific studies have proven that being in natural environments is beneficial for both mental and physical health. However, for those living in cities or those without gardens, it can be difficult to get enough nature into your life. Houseplants are a fantastic way to bring nature indoors and get the benefits that plants bring to you.
