Philodendron Selloum, commonly known as “Selloum” or “Lacy Tree Philodendron” is a popular tropical houseplant that belongs to the family Araceae. It is native to South America, particularly Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina.

The plant has large, glossy, deeply lobed leaves that can grow up to 3 feet in length. The leaves are usually arranged in a rosette at the base of the stem, and the plant can grow up to 6 feet tall and 6 feet wide.

The Philodendron Selloum plant is a great choice for adding greenery and texture to any space. Additionally, pairing an Areca Palm or a Hibiscus plant with your Philodendron Selloum can add a tropical touch to your indoor garden.

The Areca Palm’s arching fronds complement the Selloum’s upright growth habit, while the Hibiscus plant’s vivid blooms contrast beautifully with its deep green foliage.

Plant care


Philodendron selloum can tolerate a wide range of light conditions, from bright, indirect light to low light. However, it thrives best in a bright, indirect light setting.


To avoid root rot, it’s crucial to allow the soil to dry out between watering sessions. Water your plant only when the top layer of soil feels dry to the touch.


Philodendron selloum prefers high humidity levels. If your home is dry, you can increase the humidity by placing a humidifier nearby or grouping your plants together.


Feed your plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).


Prune any dead or yellowing leaves regularly to keep the plant looking healthy and prevent the spread of disease.


Repot the plant every 2 to 3 years to give it fresh soil and room to grow.


This plant prefers temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 55°F (13°C).


Philodendron selloum can be propagated through stem cuttings or division.

Stem cuttings:

  1. Choose a healthy stem with at least 2 leaves and cut it just below a node (where the leaves attach to the stem). Ensure that the cutting is at least 6 inches long.
  2. Remove the bottom leaves from the stem and dip the cut end in rooting hormone powder.
  3. Plant the cutting in a pot filled with well-draining soil and water it thoroughly.
  4. Cover the pot with a plastic bag or a clear plastic container to create a mini greenhouse and increase humidity.
  5. Keep the cutting in a bright, indirect light and water it when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.
  6. You might see the cutting develop roots and new leaves after a few weeks. You can remove the plastic cover once the cutting has established.
  7. Once the roots are well-established, you can transplant the Philodendron selloum to a larger pot or plant it in your garden.


  1. Remove the Philodendron selloum from its pot and gently separate the root ball into two or more sections. Each section should have a healthy stem and a good root system.
  2. Place every section in an individual pot filled with soil that drains well
  3. Water the newly potted plants thoroughly and keep them in a bright, indirect light.
  4. Continue to care for the new plants as you would care for an established Philodendron selloum.
