McColleys Finale are very easy to grow tropical plants that require little care indoors or out. Like other aroids, many species of Philodendron can be grown as houseplants, or outdoors in mild climates. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter. Philodendron plants can be grown in pots or hanging baskets. Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 60°- 80°F and in lower light conditions than other house plants. In the ground or up a tree, philodendrons get HUGE and are often unrecognizable from their potted juvenile state. They add a wonderful accent to any well-lit space, garden or patio. In very cold zones a containerized Philodendron can be brought inside for the winter months. Most will survive a very light frost and quickly return to normal in spring.
