A Philodendron Selloum or Tree Philodendron is native to South America, but also grows outdoors on the East and Gulf coasts of the United States. Indoors, the easy-care, self-heading Philodendron Selloum takes up a lot of space, often spreading 5ft. or more with 2ft.-3ft. leaves. The dark green, shiny leaves are large and deeply lobed. A Selloum does grow a trunk as it matures, but the huge drooping leaves usually hide it.
These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
