9 Different Philodendron Types To Add To Your Houseplant Collection

Black Cardinal Philodendron

Nearly black, this plant's rich, glossy leaves are beloved for their intense coloring. Unlike other philodendron types, it doesn't climb or sprawl like a vine.

Philodendron White Wizard

Usually a lack of color on the leaves means something's wrong with your plant, but that's just this philodendron's signature look.

Philodendron Birkin

Identified by the varying green stripes on its leaves, the Birkin is a unique hybrid that can't be found in the wild. It grows slowly but steadily when you care for it properly.

Philodendron 'Lickety Splitz

This plant grows easily and quickly with little care or maintenance, meaning it's perfect to fill that empty corner in your living room.

Silver Satin Philodendron

This Indonesian vining philodendron has silver splotches. It requires little care—just sprinkle or humidify it.

Heart Leaf Philodendron

Known for its heart-shaped leaves, this philodendron grows best when left alone—except for its monthly fertilizer feedings.

Philodendron Imperial Green

A classic rainforest variety, this plant loves to climb as it grows, so provide it with vertical support as early as you can.

Philodendron 'Brazil'

Arguably the most recognizable of all philodendron types, the Brazil variety grows long, luscious vines, so hang yours up high where they can unfurl.

Philodendron Pedatum

Also called the Florida Beauty, this variety sprouts leaves that mimic the southern state's iconic shape.
