The philodendron Shangri-La (Thamatophyllum bippinatifidum ‘Shangri-La’) is a bushy, shrub-like philodendron with large, deeply lobed leaves. It differs from other philodendron types by its compact size.
Pot size: 14 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 35 cm (without the pot)
Like most Philodendrons, the Shangri-La is considered fairly low-maintenance and easy to grow indoors. This tropical plant grows naturally in the warm, rich, and moist conditions of the rainforest understory. It is also hardy enough to withstand a bit of neglect, making it a good choice for houseplant novices and experts alike. Unlike some of its relatives, this split-leaf Philodendron does not have a climbing growth habit so it does not need a moss pole or trellis, and pruning is not necessary. While the Philodendron Shangri-La produces spathe-like flowers in spring and summer, it is extremely uncommon for it to bloom when grown as a houseplant.
