Also to know is, how fast do philodendrons grow?

In its native tropical habitat, tree philodendron is a fast grower that reaches a height of up to 15 feet, but it grows significantly slower in cultivation. You can get it to grow faster by meeting its affinity for moist, shady spots and watering it with untreated water.

Can you grow philodendron in water?

While you can plant it in a flowerpot or in the garden after it roots, the philodendron is one of the few houseplants that can grow in water permanently. Fill a clear jar or container with tap water, leaving 1 inch of space beneath the rim. Remove a 6-inch stem from a healthy philodendron plant.
