Welcome to our amazing collection of wild and wonderful artificial Philodendron. This tropical jungle genus is so widely used as an indoor house plant that we had to figure out a way to capture its unique look in a replica. With so many different leaf styles and sizes to choose designs for, we decide to go big and capture their natural beauty in lots of different ways. Understanding how the Philo grows in nature will give you a better understanding of why we’ve created our designs this way.
Philodendron grows naturally in the jungles and rainforests of the world. Hemiepiphytic plants start their life high up in the forest canopy with aerial roots. They sacrifice soil nutrients for sunshine, so their leaves can grow large and leafy. Eventually their roots reach the forest floor and the plant migrates down the tree as a mature fully grown species. Hemiepiphytes styles are the exact opposite starting their life on the ground and climbing up trees in search of sunshine as the mature.
Large philo leaves with deep groves are natural sunlight and water catchers. The more mature leaves hides smaller juveniles underneath which benefit from drips and drops and funneling of their protectors. This design allows this tropical plant to thrive in both the bright and dark regions of the rain forest. When we set out to cultivate our collection of fake philodendron we wanted to ensure that we captured the rare beauty and natural design of this tropical plant.
Silk Indoor Philodendron Plants
Because Philo has adapted in so many different way, we carry everything from small designs perfect for your desktop, to 5 foot large split leaf philodendron that can be used as a showcase plant in an office or sunroom. We’ve also worked diligently to capture the aerial climbing roots in a few of our designs mimicking a plant finding its way to the forest floor. One of my favorite features of large leaf tropical plants in replicas is the ability for the manufacturer to create a real touch real rubbery feel. The top of the leaves will shine as in nature and fake out your guests as the marvel that your indoor house plant isn’t real.
The other thing that amazes me about this collection is its ability to be either the centerpiece of a large tropical theme or a supporting actor next to other ferns and palms as a low lying filler plant. Regardless of your project needs, I’m confident you will be ecstatic with the quality and design details in this amazing collection. If you are having a difficult time figuring out how to make an artificial philodendron work in your project, give us a ring, send us a photo, we’d be happy to help you.
