About Golden Goddess Philodendron

Philodendrons grow aerial roots that grip the bark of trees, allowing them to grow over 20 feet tall! Their leaves change shape as they climb and can grow larger than a dinner plate. Fossils show Philodendrons growing as far back as 30 million years ago when South America was still connected to Antarctica! ❄️

My golden goddess’ leaves all broke when my greenhouse tipped over. It’s been about two weeks and the amount of growth since then has been phenomenal. Highly recommended!
