Philodendron bipinnatifidum 'Winterbourn'
The Philodendron Xanadu boasts long arrow-shaped leaves with varied articulation. It's a shrubby foliage plant with a growth habit that is both dense and upright.
My lush leaves will add a dash of the tropics to any space. Unlike other Philodendrons, I'm not a climber but will grow as a shrub as wide as I'm tall.
It only gets better with age! The leaf shape will fully develop and give the plant even more character.
In many ways, the Xanadu resembles an Elephant Ear, but two stand out differences are the abundance of stems at the Philodendron’s base and the shape of the leaves.
It’s fairly easy to please, so will thrive in a variety of homes and offices. The only thing to be mindful of is that it needs a good amount of light to grow well.
Key Benefits — Dust trapping and Feel good!
Philodendrons are particularly great at isolating dust and keeping them away from your surfaces and most importantly, your lungs!
As you take care of your philodendron Xanadu, it will take care of you helping reduce stress, boosting your mood and relaxing!
Plant Care Tips: The Philodendron Xanadu
If you provide the Philodendron Xanadu with a loose and well-draining medium, it can grow in any soil mix. Place the plant in a bright area away from direct sunlight. Once the soil is nearly dry, water it generously.
It’s a Brazilian plant, so it will appreciate warmer temperatures (ideally between 18 and 29ºC). Feed it during the growing season with a well-balanced fertiliser.

Useful to know:
I am a native of Brazil.
I'm not an uber fast grower but I can reach more than 1m in both height and width if you re-pot me regularly.
I need more light than other philodendrons and grow best in medium indirect light. Too much bright light causes my leaves to become pale and bleached looking and direct sun burns them.
Water me until water runs out of the bottom of the pot, then drain the saucer and never leave me sitting in water. Wait for the top 5cm of soil to dry before watering me again.
I like temperatures between 16-26 degrees C.
Fertilise me monthly in spring and autumn, more often in summer and not at all in winter.
I get yellowing leaves when adjusting to a new home or when I'm due a growth spurt. Just remove these by cutting them at the base of the stem.

Keep me away from pets and children as I am toxic.
There are two stories about my origin - it's claimed that I was discovered by chance in a nursery in West Australia but I have since been found to have originated from a seed collected in Brazil.
