The internet confused me more, so I’m coming here instead. 🌿 Growth habit of WPP & PPP 🌿
Can someone please confirm for me if the Philodendrons listed at the end of this post are classified as:
β€’ Vining
β€’ Climbing
β€’ Self-heading
β€’ Creeping

I’ve literally read conflicting information across various websites for the plants specified below. It would be really helpful to understand clearly what their growth habits are so that I can start training the climbers on a pole or trellis. Thanks so much!

⭐️ Philodendrons on trial:
1. White Princess Philo.
2. Pink Princess Philo.
3. Painted Lady Philo.
4. Ring of Fire Philo.

All of those you listed are climbing.

You could give your painted lady something to climb on, but I'd let your White grow more first.
@AwesomePlants is the #PhiloQUEEN! Maybe she has some ideas.

I believe they are either self heading or vining.
@jcPlantProper would know too.
Vining example:
Micans
Heartleaf
Brasil

You can pole these as well or let them drape
All climbers for sure!
Self heading example is a Birkin. Crawler examples would be gloriosum and plowmanii.
@AwesomePlants @jcPlantProper thank you! I appreciate your help!
@lazyplantparent Our pleasure! Can't wait to see your philo babies grow!
Thanks @AwesomePlants and @jcPlantProper! Y'all taught me something!
