Philodendron Red Emerald stick

If you’re looking for a philodendron a little out of leftfield, look no further than Philodendron bipennifolium. Large, fiddle-shaped leaves that are glossy and green are what gives the horsehead or fiddle-leaf philodendron its common moniker. This plant is known as a hemi-epiphyte, meaning it starts life in the soil before attaching to a tree and climbing towards the top of the rainforest canopy with the assistance of its long stem and aerial roots. It is for this reason that this fast-growing tropical plant does best when supported by a solid stake or totem.
