PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I think that I have that plant I always called it split leaf Philodendron I have had it for while than in the late spring I put it outside and it gets so much bigger I love this plant than I pull out small plants that started and get the roots buy just keeping in water
Xanadu is widely grown as a landscape plant in the south half of Florida. It is about the same as the common split leaf when it comes to water, fertilizer, light etc. Unlike the split leaf Xanadu prefers shade (it tolerates low light very well). It will grow in the sun, but, it needs lots and lots of water (and FL is running out of water).
Here is a planting of Xanadu (botton left), a similar hybrid called Showboat (to the right & above in the frame) that grows larger and Sago Palms at Epcot in Orlando>
Nice Xanadu plants! I have a question to add. I have a Xanadu inside and it isn't as full as it could be. Any thoughts on how to get it to fill out again? I think it may not get enough light to be really happy but I don't have a bright window my cat can't get to LOL. Would putting it in a larger pot do any good?
Dimmer: You have one of the tree Philodendrons: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/37036/ They are grown as landscape plants down here in Florida and get very large. I have them growing in my side yard and they were hit hard by a couple of freezes we had this winter but are putting out lots of new growth already.
I have been getting new growth and I pull some of them out and have them in water growing Than after a while I put them in dirt it works
I have given Susan one and its doing good when warm weather comes I put it on the deck
