Philodendron Giganteum is an easy going tropical plant with variable leaf size. This stunning plant can grow a maximum leaf size of 76" by 38" and will either grow terrestrially or as an epipetric (either crawling in the soil or climbing along rocks). This aroid will handle a multitude of light levels from medium indirect to a bit of direct sun. If you would like your Giganteum to reach its full potential and grow some colossal leaves, we recommend increasing the humidity for the plant and feeding regularly during the growing season.
Philodendron grow very well outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Philodendron in Full to Partial Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-5 days outdoors with moderate temperatures. During periods of extreme heat, you may need to water your Philodendron every 2-3 days.
