Houseplant, Split-Leaf Philodendron

Will the Split-Leaf Philodendron be the 2018 Houseplant of the Year?

As the obsession with fiddle-leaf fig trees winds down, I believe next in line for the ranking of number one houseplant is the split-leaf philodendron or Philodendron bipinnatifidum.

Recently featured on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, Season 5, Episode 4, The Scrivano House, the plant has been gaining popularity among home owners.


This easy to care for houseplant instantly creates a jungle-like atmosphere in your home because of its size.


Although it prefers high humidity, the split-leaf is fairly tolerant of most homes.


I have not one but FOUR split-leaf philodendrons in my home right now.

What do you think? Do you have a split-leaf in your home?
