Philodendron is a large genus of flowering plants in the Araceae family, consisting of about 900 species. Regardless of number of species, the genus is the second-largest member of the arum family. Philodendron species can be found in many diverse habitats in the tropical Americas and the West Indies. Most occur in humid tropical forests, but can also be found in swamps and on river banks, roadsides and rock outcrops. They are also found throughout the diverse range of elevations from sea level to over 2000 m above sea level. Species of this genus are often found clambering over other plants, or climbing the trunks of trees with the aid of aerial roots.
Varieties include: philodendron bipinnatifidum, philodendron xanadu
